I think common BNs start to breed at around 3 inches, so i am guessing that it would be roughly the same for L183, are these starlights to make sure...

although i am not entirely sure, wait for a few more answers

Hope this helps

I would say my female is around 4 inches and the male about 5. But i do have a slightly smaller pair that have produced eggs, but no young as yet.
Hope this helps,

they need to be bigger than common bristlenose as they are a larger species in general. They mature later too, anywhere from 15-18 months i have been told. I have always bought mature fish so i am not sure myself.
