Not a lot of experience with Bristlenose but have 5 Peppermint on their way this week to help clean my Discus tank. Hoping to raise them to a breeding size and let nature take it's course. Figured that with 5 im guaranteed at least a couple of females any advice would be most appreciated

Hey mate and

  

once they get to breeding size make sure you swap out your females for another bloodline Smile

Thanks for the welcome Doug is it advisable to have more females than males if so wouldn't replacing the male bloodlines be more wiser

6 of one, half a dozen of the other. Guess it depends on what you have at hand at the time. I like to swap females because if i can find two different females i now have three different bloodlines and I find the females easier to tell apart than the males for some reason

Don't expect too much. They will eat leftover food and some types of algies. But clean tank is the result of proper water changes and light settings.
