PostSubject: Question about types of BN for a planted tank   Sun Dec 04, 2011 4:31 am

Are some types of Bristlenose that are more suited for planted tanks than others? I want to keep my plants in good shape, so I don't want to get any type that would eat my plants.

I forgot to mention that I have a 38 gallon planted tank with 5 adult Congo Tetras, 3 adult SASE's, 2) 3.5" Clown Loach, 1) 3" Kubotia Loach, 1) 2.5" albino Long-fin BN, and 1) 2.5" plain brown bristle nose. I use 4) 18 watt bulbs for the plants, but no CO2.

Hi

I agree, bn are great with plants i've never had a problem with them with plants but i have had a group of congo tetras that loved to strip a plant of their green leaves.

remember where bristlenose come from as well, best tanks will replicate their natural environment which is full of plants

Shouldn't worry about your plants.

BNs might look like monsters, but they are angels! Cool
