PostSubject: Is this a calico?   Mon Jul 01, 2013 7:51 am

Hi everyone, i just got a little bristlenose from my LFS and the shop attendant only told me that it was a bristlenose. It was sold together in a tank of commons and albinos and they were all around the same size. I've never seen my LFS selling calico's but i think it looks like one so i would be very much grateful if someone could tell me what type it is Very Happy thank you.

Here are some of the photos i just took:

Bristlenoses, I disagree with you, This lil fella is identical to my calico's.
Chocolate body with the yellow fins & yellow mouth.

Mine have yellowed up more now they are 6cm.

I have to agree with Doug it is a bit young but I'm leaing toward Calico only because of the color and the pattern on the tail

Can you get some better pics of the tail pattern please maybe a pic of his tail fin spread open

Maybe the calicos over here look different because my calicos looked very different to that.

I have recently had a batch of calico fry, and none are so uniform in colour, they are light in patches, dark in patches. Sort of random dark brown, black and white blotches. No real pattern. The fish in that photos' colouration seemed very uniform throughout the length of the fish.
