Does male breeding start at age, length of fish, amount of bristle's on head or other?

I would say age,but if you do not know the age you can usualy tell by the fishes size and bristles etc.

It depends on individual fish and conditions but any fish around 5-6cms in length and 8-9 months old are potential breeders. I've had males as small as 5cms breed showing very few bristles and other not start untill they were 10cms+ and with a full set of bristles.
