The Blue Eye Albino Bristlenose, also known as the Blue Eye Lemon Bristlenose or Blue Eye Longfin Bristlenose, is a variant of the common Bristlenose Pleco (Ancistrus sp.) with unique characteristics.

The Blue Eye Albino Bristlenose, as the name suggests, has blue eyes, which is a distinct feature that sets it apart from other Bristlenose Plecos. It also carries the albino gene, resulting in a lack of pigmentation and an overall pale or creamy coloration. The combination of blue eyes and the albino trait creates a striking appearance.

In addition to the blue eyes and albino coloration, the Blue Eye Albino Bristlenose typically possesses the same physical features as other Bristlenose Plecos. This includes a flattened body with a series of bony plates on their body, a prominent bristle-like growth on their head (more pronounced in males), and a sucker mouth for clinging onto surfaces.

In terms of care, Blue Eye Albino Bristlenose Plecos have similar requirements to other Bristlenose Plecos. They are primarily herbivorous and should be provided with a varied diet that includes algae-based foods, sinking pellets, and occasional vegetable matter. They appreciate driftwood in their tank as it aids in digestion and provides hiding places. These plecos also require good water quality, with a temperature range of around 72-82°F (22-28°C) and a pH level of 6.5-7.5.

Like other Bristlenose Plecos, Blue Eye Albino Bristlenose Plecos are generally peaceful and can be kept in community aquariums with compatible fish species. They are also known for their ability to help control algae growth in the aquarium.
