Hi All

Took my daughter to Blue Reef Aquarium in Bristol yesterday.

They had a tank with what looked like 3 female bristles, and one male - he was HUGE, about twice the size of my one at home, and a proper thick forest of bristles.

They looked like the common brown bns, but I had no idea they could get that big!

No queries or questions today, just sharing!

Wish I had taken my camera! :roll:

there are cases of them being huge. My first male breeder, well, my second ever bristlenose, Spazim was his name, was 18cms long and had bristles like tree trunks! He was bigger than most peppermints!!! Shocked

rest in peace Spazim, it was him that got me into these amazing creatures!
