I have a proven pair of common bristlenose for sale...
Wont be ready for about 2 weeks as they have just laid eggs (again!)
Both around 4.5 inches long (maybe a bit bigger) and very healthy.
Will come with his favourite cave!
I have posted this early in case anyone wanted to come and see him in action!
Collection from Birmingham!

They are browns... Sorry should have said that in the first post lol!
I dont know how much they normally go for...
I guess im looking at around the £40 mark...
Ther are 100% unrelated as they have come from different cities lol!
My lfs has been buying my babies at £1.50 each but says they cant take any more so sadly the pair has to go before I get overrun!!!
I want to concentrate on my longfins now!!!

A breeding pair goes for £35-£55 so a fair price if you ask me....

Why you selling them????

not being iffy mate but i once bought a breeding pair from a LFS to find they was all from the same batch and just paired up.....
if you can trust they have breed before then you have a good deal....
but i like to pay a little extra knowing that they are already breeding and are un-related.....

but thats me being fussy lol....

Only really selling them cos im gonna end up over run with babies otherwise...
My lfs cant take any more and they are having around 80 at a time...
Plus, now my longfins are growing up I want to start trying to get them to breed... If they do, I really wont have the space for them all!!!
This is my boy but the pic is about 6 months old (so he is bigger than this with more bristles) and cant take one now cos he is in the cave lol!

good looking fish there Very Happy

And i'm with Curby...I would never buy a breeding pair from a shop. Mature fish sure, and then pair them up with other mature fish. I just plain and simple dont trust fish shops!

Just thought I would add a couple of pics of some of my babies!

Proven pair of bristlenoses for sale Babies11

Proven pair of bristlenoses for sale Babies12

I know some lfs can be very untrustworthy...
I have one that I use most of the time (the one who has my babies) and they have always been great but there are others locally who I wouldnt trust an inch...
One tried to sell me a para pleco claiming it was a panaque clown pleco!!!

All I can say is that the male came from birmingham and the female came from Oxford so the chances of being related are zero!!!
Also, all the fry have done really well and I have had no sickness (or deaths) in them at all...
(I have heard can happen with related bn's breeding)
The eggs he is fanning at the moment were laid Monday night (28th) so its gonna be a while before they hatch out and leave the cave so there is no hurry...

Sadly my car is off the road Sad Failed its MOT Sad

Just wanted to add though, the babies dont come with the pair...
That said, they breed so regular you will be inundated with wigglers before you can turn round!
