I have three commons, My Female Lars, her younger suitor Lar's Boyfriend (it kinda stuck), and a little wiggler by the name of Speckle, who lives with my betta (he's only about 2-3cm big! The betta loves him, just sits and watches him go around on the glass for hours!).
Also, There's the 5 supposed L059 (thought I'm not too convinced as of late), Tim, Squik, Blik and Bigspots in my tank, and Titch in my mothers.

I like to name them c:

I have 2 common brown and 5 Albino. All bought in pairs from different places and different times as fry (approx 1") and every single one is a male. I'm reluctant to get any more babies in case this happens again.

Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket?

I would be happy to give 2/3 males to someone who can collect around the Midlands then I might try my luck with a couple more babies. Today I saw a larger one bullying a smaller one. First time I have seen this. Obviously the testosterone is running high.

Hello BRISTLENOSE PEEPS......I'M up to 8 Albinos.....4 in 40G Angelfish/Tetra tank & 4 in 20L Guppy/Platy grow tank.I absolutely LOVE them.They are so entertaining.Want to add yet another tank with a planted environment for just them.I live in an Apartment and have to hide the tanks when the landlord checks the smoke alarm every 6 months.....So far so good. Very Happy :P :P I have to NOW hide 40G,29G H,20G L (2),10G (3),5G,and a 2.5 G.It was easier when I had only a few tanks last year.Let's face it ....I love my fish and The Bristlenoses are part of the love when I got a few finally.Any thoughts on how to set up a 20G or 20G L (if I can acquire one) for just them ???? I can probably get the KIDS AFTER I set up the tank......I always make sure my NEW tanks are CYCLED before I add any fish.Use Female betta to help the process.Anything I need to know about sexing them when I get there and behavior for a BRISTLE ONLY tank would be awesome !!!! THANKS
BOSTON PAULIE Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Cool Cool

I have 1 male LF common, 2 male SF albinos, 3 SF green dragon juvies, 2 LF calico juvies, and 2 SF calico fry. 10 in total! I am hoping of my juvies and fry that I'll have some females so I can start a project. I bought my 3 adut males before as unsexable juvies, I love them but I wish ONE would have been female, lol.
