Hi,yes bristlenoses are o.k on sand and some people do keep them on it.Make sure you turn it over regularly or run something through it to let any trapped gases escape.I personaly prefer gravel but everyone has their own preferences.Just make sure it is the correct type of sand for aquariums.


Bristlenoses Very Happy

Oh I forgot to mention the type I use, I use pool filter sand because the standards have to be high for human health and anything that is good for humans is good for fish
