hi all.
i have approx 30-40 Baby bristlenose's. 2-3cm they are all common browns. they have come from a GUARANTEED none related breeding pair. i have another brood in the cave just turned to wrigglers. will be ready in a couple of months if you were looking to breed as this batch is from a different GUARANTEED none relation pair. all my adult bn's r none relation to each other. you could get 1 now and 1 in a couple of months and they will be 100 % none relation. i would normally wait till a tad bigger before selling but they r growing at an excellent rate and i have already moved 2 single bn's into 2 tanks which r doing great and a further 5 have gone to a mates tank which r all doing great. if u have any BIG fish u would need plenty of hiding places in the tank for the bn's. you would need some algae wafers to feed them on but if u have no pleco's or other tank cleaners they will be fine for a couple of days off ur tanks natural algae. they also love cucumber, corgette, and nectarine from time to time. i am asking 2.50 per fish or 10 for 5. most pet shops have offered me 2-3 but want me to grow em a little bit bigger as they sell em for 8-10+ but with another brood in the cave i will soon be over run.
thanks

nah they r generally fine with each other being vegatarians. i have 3 big males and 2 big females and recently re-homed them with 4 juviniles (2 inch)born in november. and i was worried my males may be terretorial with the others but they werent. they r all fine with each other. i don't know if it is because i have like 3 caves in there and plenty of plants so they can avoid each other if neccesary but they all seem to get on well. even at feeding times.

it is really easy to sex them as males have dominant bristles and females rarely get any bristles. but they can't be sexed till they r like 2-3 inches. approx 10 months old. best thing to do is what i did. get a few. like 3. wait till they r sexable then sell the other 2 u don't want.
