I have been breeding bristlenose for 2 yrs and its now time to intergrate all my tanks into one big tank.
What other fish can I have with bristlenose that are breeding, I was tihnking tetras cory doras discus, tried clowns they ate about 100 babies in 2 days dam it, my fault.
Any help would be great

I've had archer fish with my BNs for years and quickly learnt that any fish that feeds upwards in the water column (eyes on top of head) generally leaves baby BNs alone, especially if the tank has plenty of wood, plants etc for them to hide in and airation to stop them needing to come to the surface. Aussie saratoga are good too and guppies are always safe.
