PostSubject: Super Red Bristle    Mon Feb 27, 2012 5:51 am

Hi everyone its been awhile since I have posted. Now down to bussiness I need some expert advice fome everyone who has Super Reds. Are they a bred of their own or are they a cross breed, and if they are a cross have they been so highly bred that they are only males. Or is it that I am the only person on the planet that can have there pick of forty one inch babys and get six males.They are all about two and a half inches long and showing bristles.
Thanks for any info.
Chris

they are a morph of the common bristlenose. they were bred by selectivly breeding albinos with nice pink and red bits on them.

you have been unlucky getting males only, grow them up and swap them with another breeder.

Hi,Maybe you pick the biggest ones?Next time pick the smallest ones out of the batch.It definately isn't a guarantee but it may lower the odds a little Smile
