    They are a stunning fish, I absolutely love them.

    Their tank is around 30gal and there are 6 adults and countless fry.......so pretty sure a couple in a 75 will be no probs lol

    Thanks Alasse, I've been looking for something not to large to handle the glass for me. These guys are very cool.

    You've sold me! I never cared for the common bristle nose or any of the other color variants. Just not my thing. But this, this is what I've been looking for.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    These guys also need food and not just what grows on the glass.

    I'm not entirely convinced this is L071 though. It's a stunning looking fish and seems to lack the two-tone base of L071

    Congrats on the spawns, you'll have young ones up to your eyeballs before they take a break now. You breeding them in a low pH? I got a group of juvies, hopefully will have them spawning sometime this year.

    ^^^^Please click the eggs/dragons, thanks.

    They are L071 Peppermint BN :) If the get the 2 toned look they are stressed about something (mine will do it if being caught or they don't feel safe), a happy Pep is pure black base.

    They wont take a break, now they have started they will just keep ticking new spawns over and over :) They are being bred in the water that comes outta the tap, last time is tested its around 7+.

    The large male pictured is around 7yrs old now and still loving life and being a daddy
    Lots of tanks

    @Alasse: OK, L071 it is. Looks very good though.

    @Surfdog: Even though it has a picture of some kind of ancistrus on the pot it doesn't make it suitable for them.

    Ingredients:
    Salmon, Kelp, Rice Bran, Wheat Flour, Shrimp, Soy Flour, Herring,Wheat Gluten, Wheat Germ, Rice Hulls, Spirulina, Canthaxanthin (Color), Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Vegetable Oil, BHA (Preservative), BHT (Preservative), Ethoxyquin (Preservative), Lecithin, Calcium, L-Ascorbyl-2-Monophosphate (Source of Vitamin C), Vitamin A Acetate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Riboflavin, Niacin and Inositol

    Guaranteed Analysis:
    Crude Protein (min) 34.0%
    Crude Fat (min) 12.0%
    Crude Fiber (max) 6.0%
    Moisture (max) 8.0%
    Ash (max) 10.0%
    Vitamin A (min) 15,400 IU/kg
    Vitamin B2 (min) 22mg/kg
    Vitamin C (min) 880mg/kg
    Vitamin D3 (min) 2,200 IU/kg


    So what you got is a lot of fish meal and flour and little else. Probably decent food for animals like cories but personally (and I hope Alasse will also give his view here) I like to feed bristlenose a diet that is at least 85% fiber rich vegetable based. I use zucchini and pure spirulina tabs as the base of their diet. I add a hikari algae wafer twice a week for their protein needs. A protein rich diet tends to lead to digestive problems with these fish.

    For diet mine get Algae disks as their main diet, they get shrimp pellets once a week, some veges (zucchini, capsicum, pumpkin, snow peas, beans, sweet potato, etc) 2-3 a week & some fruit (mango, grapes) as a treat
    Lots of tanks
