It depends on individual males and also the type of cave as to when they emerge. If you can get the cave, fry and the male into a container and transfer all of them to your fry tank sooner rather than later.

Thanks,

Its a standard rectangle slate cave, thats what i thought about the move.

just out of interest..... my male has possibly only 4 bristles leading from above the mouth up between the eyes but the bristles are more like punk rocker spikes, unlike the other males i have which have the standard bristle formation. Is this a standard bn or a different?

It's a punk rocker bristlenose Very Happy Have you got a pic of him? He will be exactly the same as all the others except he has a different formation of bristle growth,it's good to be different.Unless of course some other fish ate some of his bristles,has he always been like that?

Would be nice to see a pic and also would be good to know if any of his babies have the same,but unless you keep some till they develope you wont know.
