PostSubject: Sexing albinos   Tue Jan 22, 2013 9:31 pm

Hi I recently acquired 3 bristlenoses 1 brown female and 2 albino's

I think the albinos are males but have been told by a few people they are male and female
They are both between 3-4 inch



I've had a breeding bair before and the male had a lot more bristles than these 2 And the female had a few but not as many as these

All input is much appreciated

Cant post a link or get photos up on my iPad

Thanks! They are in a 2000x600x600mm. 720 litre tank
If I got 3 more females so I would have 2male 4 female would that be a good ratio or would there be aggression between the males?
It's a heavily wooded tank with a divider in that the plecs can get past and loads of places to hide

Yeh that's correct

There are a few future monsters in the tank but nothing that will attack the plecs yet

There are a Siamese tiger, channa stewarti and various Birchers one end and a map turtle in the other side a few weeks while his tank is upgraded

I realise some of these are quite aggressive but I have plenty of other tanks to but the fry in. Or the adults if agressiong becomes an issue

I was trying pecks in here as I normally use flagtails to clean but the Siamese tiger won't accept anything silver in the tank anymore :/
