Gday all, just starting to get into some serious breeding of bristlies and soon L numbers and peps. Got a few decent tanks going already but when I look at them they are a bit boring with just the plecos on the bottom strata and all the mid-top water colomn empty, have some tetras in a couple of the tanks and just been thinking about other species that I can breed to put in with them. I do breed some cichlids ect in other tanks but what can i breed in bristlenose breeding tanks?
So if anyone here has other breeding colonies in there bristlenose tanks can you let me know what species and your experiences with dual species breeding tanks.
Obvious traits required would be-
*Fish leave bristlenose and there caves/eggs/babies alone.
*Bristlenose leave fish/eggs/fry alone.
*Same water conditions prefered.
*Ease of breeding as tanks are primarily pleco breeding tanks dont want to do extra work on new species.
I was considering going discus but i would think that the bristlenose would chomp down on the discus eggs. Reckon live bearers would be fine but gups/mollies dont really interest me that much,
Any ideas would be appreciated.
