easy as normal bristlenose once everything is set up properly Smile

They are a bit more sensitive to the pH and temp of the water, particually for breeding but in general thay are fairly easy to keep. They are a bit more shy and will get a bit more agressive if pushed by other fish. they have their gill spikes and are not scared to use them!

get your pH to below 7 and your temp between 26-28 and you will be laughing.

Welcome to the club lol!

Are you feeding the sweet potato raw or blanching it for a few minutes. If they are only youngsters they may prefer it blanched.
