PostSubject: moved a few bristlenose...   Sun May 31, 2009 2:28 pm

well-i had some help from a 3 year old-but we got a few moved from a 29g to a 125g.
months ago i purchesed 5 albino and 6 brown bn's...moved a few to the 75g with some discus, and last nite moved 3 more to the 125g.
the kids want to know how all grew so fast being in a 29g tank? i changed about 80% of the water at least 4 times a week and fed them green beans, cucumber, tetra color bits and algae wafers.
i tried seperating males and females, but theres only a few i knew was males...so we took a gander i guess u could say. now i have 4 in a 29g-3 in a 75g with discus, and 3 in a 125g with discus. (i lost one about 2 weeks after i got them)

u think i would have any luck with the ones with the discus breeding? all the tank have caves-but if they breed i wish it would be the ones in the 29g-i just have sponge filters in there...the other tanks i have aquaclear 110's.

Probably not as the discus would disturb the BNs and visa versa.

B/N have no probs spawning in a tank with other species( pepps and fancier types
are best kept as species tanks allthough)
From what I understand Discus are pretty mellow fish and get on fairly well with
bristlies. My breeding tank has 2 thumping big L001 and a mean as mid sized YOYO
loach and mine breed non stop. Good caves and cover to retreat in is good start.
NB: Ive never kept Discus , this advice is purely from experience.
Cheers J
PS :filterige- sponge filters are good , but B/N are quite capable swimmers when
they are young - I think in 18 months of breeding them I found about 1/2 dozen
dead in the power filters

They will defenatly breed in the same tank as the discus mate but if the discus would eat the babies or not im not sure you could always move the babies into a fry trap if they do spawn for you though

good luck and let us know how you get on
