PostSubject: I finally have my Bristlenose!   Tue Sep 11, 2012 10:30 am

Went to the store today to pick up some tetras for my tank, as the builders have finally finished. Walked in and fell totally in love with this little marbled bristlenose!

I wasn't planning on picking up a bristlenose until next week but I totally couldn't help myself!

So now the gorgeous girl/guy is happily settled in to my tank, with 6 ornate tetras.

And let me just say... I was totally expecting him/her to disappear in one of the many caves in my tank, but he has been happily scuttling about, cleaning the glass, decorations and rocks for the last few hours! I am so happy cheers

I have the tank lights off to let everyone settle in, but I will take a pic tomorrow

I was despairing of being able to take a photo of him, he was at first quite scared of the camera.

Thus earning him the name "Skittles; The Masked Bandit" because he has a cool mask over his eyes, and he would scuttle off and hide every time I approached with the camera. He was fine every other time I approached

And then today, he posed for me all over the tank. Here are some photos of my boy

Howdy;
I don't know if I should be happy or worried for you.
Bristlenoses are so addictive.
Try stopping at just one !!!!

I don't mind if he loses his coloring. I didnt pick him for that, although he is gorgeous. He was just scuttling across the bottom of the display tank, he looked so funny Smile

He is funny with his camouflage, he will turn almost black on my back glass and gravel, but stays orange when he is on the dark driftwood *silly boy*
