maturaty varys a lot with bristlenose. as a rule 9-10 months or 6ish cms should put you in the ball park. of course there are exceptions to the rule. and Jim showed with that cracker of a shot!!!
if they do breed young though expect small spawns and maybe a few discarded eggs. but they will improve over time.
