would you say these fish are the same species,

Golden Albino Bristlenose and Albino longfin bristlenose ?

and if i'm right in thinking they are also the same family as Common Bristle nose,

all the same but with different markings ?

cheers,

Dave

haven't got them yet just looking into getting hold of a couple of groups to grow out,

last one for ya on these ones,

how many wriggles would be safe to keep in a 3.5ft tank while they grow out,

would i get away with a group of 6 albino lf's and a group of 6 common lf's

cheers,

Dave

Like with any other fish the size of the fish is the important factor when it comes to the determining the quantity of fish for a specific tank size together with filter size, air pumps etc....

A tank of 3.5 feet (assuming its at least 3.5x1x1) with adequate filtration, oxygenation etc.. should easily hold 12 BNs while they are growing out. However this again will all depend on what size you grow them out to before you move them on...?? and whether or not you have other fish in there with them.

Personally if they are in there on there own I would keep them together untill they reach between 5/6 cms (sexable) and then split them into seperate groups and tanks.

cheers

Jon
