PostSubject: Bristlenose eyes   Mon May 18, 2009 9:19 pm

Hi All

Just a quick question and one that may appear a little odd, but do all bristlenose have a papillary iris flap? and is it always visible. The reason i ask is that i have seen numerous photos on the net where they appear to have a "normal" type eye with no pappilary iris flap, and wonder if some bristlenose are like that.

Pappilary Iris flap : from what I've read KenG ,it's the same dealy as your Iris , it's designed to do the
same thing, control the level of light that reaches the eye. Expanding the Iris flap cuts down the level
of light which the fish prefers. I could be wrong - thats just what I have read.
Cheers J

Hi I bought some albino long fins and have just noticed that one has black eyes - is this normal colour as it's not albino red?

If it has black eyes it is probably a L144 Smile

Do you have a pic

There's no need to separate them until they are breedable size, and then that's because it's best not to mix types if possible.

Kick me if I'm wrong but I though L144 had blueish eyes?
Possibly sounds like a mixed gene - a common that has a lot of white skin pigment
but not the red eyes like a true albino. I have been known to wrong before.

The L144's that I have and that I have seen have blue/black eyes. So dark that they look black so it can sometimes be difficult to tell. Also, the colouration should be more lemon as well. Although I too could be wrong lol!

most of the L144' s i have kept and seen have either blue or black eyes. :bounce: :bounce: and they will have a much richer colour to there body as an albino will be pale.
