I find that caves which are a fairly close fit to the fish work best I think it makes the males more secure and they feel they can defend the cave better

I am not that clued up on Bristlenose but everything that I have read and seen about breeding them seems to point mainly at a tight opening just the right to size so the male can squeeze in and out of the cave... and her Shocked

just goes to show they will spawn just about anywere if the condition's are right..there are two guy's on PF who sell caves one is called Jo'sZebs he sells the cone shaped cave's you mentioned and there is intrepedix he sells slate caves and you can also ask him to build one to your requirments i asked for quite a large cave and he said he will make it and post it just for £7.50 a bargain if you ask me so iam gonna purchase one of each and try the slate cave first... Very Happy

i have found this to be best to they like a tight squeeze even if the male looks to big for the cave

i have spawned mine in all diffrent caves from Terrocotta tubes to home made waste pipe tubes, and slate i dont think there to fussy about what it is made of it is more to do with the size

it is a good sign when the female is hanging around the cave maybe when the light are out something will happen, you will soon know because he will come out and let her in first

i have a video somewhere of my L144s spawning i will try and find it and upload it

fingers crossed for you

or do this........

Hmm right this is how i would do it.....
open a new tab and find a site called TinyPic...its free to use and very simple...on the main page it will say upload on the right hand side...click this...browse your comp for the desired pic lets say one of your discus...upload it through tinypic....once it has uploaded it you will have a list down the centre of the page with letters and numbers your looking for the one that says IMG
right click it and press copy.............
right start a new post in here in picture section.....write what you wanna right first then make sure you leave spaces then right click again and press paste...
you will now see numbers and letters saying Img,.bla bla.bbdc3492..........and click post your pic should be there on your post then.....
Just make sure your image is a good size to do this insert your pic into paint or sumert and click edit,,,stretch and skew and set it to 60x60 make sure you save it...
but just try the above i will re-size it if need be...hope this helps...
