I put one in my community tank because I have some algae there, and the other in the betta tank, because it's cute and I like to look at it:)

Can't wait to get some myself. Very cute. Thanks for photos.

They're adorable. I love BNs. When I first planned my aquarium it was all about the colorful little fish like neons. Now it's all about catfish. They have such personality. How big are your two?

They're tiny, about 3 cm.

Well done! I love the bristlenose and i am so proud of you for getting one!!! Woot woot, trust me they grow fast though!

I suggest getting algae wafers, some type of shrimp meat pellets, and of course feed him blanched veggies!

They will grow quick and if you need help sexing them i can help you there but is nearly impossible to do so when they are so young and dont have bristlees yes!

Conrgrats its a good looking BRistlenose!

Thanks:) I'm loving them, they are so cute!! I fed algae wafers to the one on the betta tank last night, and came back a bit later to find the betta ridiculously fat, while the bn showed no interest in it o_O

is it ok to put a pl#co in a betta tank? i wouldn't think it would be good enough.

It's 15 litres, and has a heater and filter. I know it will grow out of it, but I have a community tank it can move into once it grows a bit. But it's tiny at the moment and doesn't seem to move around much anyway, so I'd say it's fine:)
