Hello all

I am getting back into the hobby after a 12 year break, i am looking at getting form Peppermint Bristle noses and trying to breed them.

I will be setting up a 4ft x 14" x 20" tank and was wondering what tank mates would go well with the BN's, a fish that i have always loved is the Lionhead Cichlid or some call it the blockhead (Steatocranus casuarius)

Would these be a suitable tank mate?

Thanks Doug

I wasnt sure as the Lionheads are bottom dwellers as well and also spawn in caves, so i was hoping they would not fight for space or annoy each other

Just don't put any sucking cats in with the BN'S. I just got rid of mine. Hopefully my BN'S, will now start breeding. Smile
