First time I baught a bristlenose I sat and watched it for ages but it was only little and did hide a bit. So I went out and baught another.... And another.... And another lol. Think a couple weeks later I went from 1 little common to 2 commons, 2 albinos and 2 Peppermints... Pretty much just escalated from there lol. Point is do you think your bristlenose is lonely or do you just want more? I'd op for more, but that's me Very Happy

LOL! That sounds like me a month or two ago! I had an albino bn in my tank for a several years and decided to get her a mate. It wasn't easy to find a big male, since only one store even stocks bn around here. So I brought the boy home and...I now have 2 boys! My original one is apparently a male too! It had a few teeny tiny bristles at the end of its nose, but when I added the new male, suddenly there were more small bristles. LOL.

So then I went out and added another small, albino bn and an even smaller albino longfin bn. So yeah, it's awful easy to end up with a few of those guys. Good thing they are kinda cute!

You can never have enough bristlenoses that's for sure, and besides, the more there is, the more activity, and they're so much fun to watch.

So as everyone has said......buy more more more!!! lol Laughing Wink Smile
