    I have a 46 gallon aquarium. If my bristlenosers lay 50-100 eggs that's way too many fish. What can I do with all the babies? I don't want to flush them, but I don't want to watch them starve and run out of room either. Help!!!

    Simple really, just make sure you have fish of only 1 sex.

    Babies... get a big plastic tub or a spare tank, stick in a sponge filter and a heater and raise these fish until they're an inch or so and then sell them.

    There is an easy way to not have them starve: feed them. Just like "Normal" fish. Bristlenoses will eat lots of vegetables including cucumber, and also algae wafers.

    And never flush a fish. I am not sure whether you meant it figuratively or literally, but why do people think that fish "die" the moment they are out of sight? In reality they spend the next few hours in agony flopping around in chlorinated sewage. There are many better ways to euthanize a fish.

    True. But there's a market out there for albino ancistrus so I'd say raise them and sell them. Worst case you'll get a big bag of algae wafers out of it from a shop, best case you could make $2 per fish.
