PostSubject: breeding bristlenose with a small male and larger females.   Wed Mar 12, 2014 11:08 am

hi guys,
sorry this is my first post so please forgive me if i put this in the wrong place.
i have been breeding bristlenose for years with incredible success.
i am currently breeding from a 12 cm albino male with 6 females between 7-10 cm.
i also have some long finned bristlenose i would like to replace my big albino male with.
but my long finned bristlenose males are around 9-10 cms so the equivalent of a 6-7 cm short fin.
i was wondering how well would breeding go when some of the females are alot bigger and bulkier then the males?
has anyone had any success with breeding bristlenose with a small male and big females?
all answers are appreciated Smile
thanks in advance for your help

I remember one of my young albino males bout 6months barely 6 cm breeding with a 2 year old common female about 10-11cms, she was massive compared to him but he looked after the eggs none the less.
