I have just bought 2 lemon bristlenose plecos. They are doing well and doing a great job of cleaning my tank. I just need to know how many times to feed them cucumber, is it just once a week or once a month??? . :mrgreen:

Once a week as a treat.
You will find that once they reach adult size they will stop eating algae.
If you feed cucumber too often you might find they stop eating algae even sooner :wink:
