PostSubject: Common bristlenose care   Sun Aug 04, 2013 11:11 am

My wife noticed something exciting tonight that we are going to have baby bristlenose . Now my question is what's the best way to care for them? Also what's the best food for the fry is brine shrimp any good or is it better giving them blanched zucchini? And would kuhli loaches or tetras eat the fry? thanks for all your help

couple of tips. First is a shameless plug but none the less it will help you out

www.keepingandbreedingbristlenose.com

you will find all the information you will ever need i there, everyone who has bought it agrees.

To answer your specific questions, Bristlenose fry need vege matter just like their parents. BBS will most likely kill them. They need the same diet as their parents. I recommend cucumber (not blanched) or de-shelled peas (blanched).

The Khulis might have a go at getting into the cave to have a go at the eggs and wrigglers but dad should be on top of that. It will depend on the type of tetra we are talking about. Neons will be fine, Piranha will be a bit of an issue hehe
