That is a beautiful tree!! (The bristles) it's good to see a good strain. Their also very fun to breed. I have a pair in my tank waiting for them to get large enough to breed.

Thanks. I have a long-finned marble female I'd like him to breed with, but so far he has only bred with my albino.
He long floppy bristles remind me of these squishy balls:

Thanks. His bristles are very different from my other marble BN boy- he looks like a punk rocker with his mess of upright branched bristles. Lol
He has never bred :-(
The guy in the photo is a wee bit paranoid. Lol. It's like he has to keep an eye on me if I'm in the room. When I get close he will sometimes arch and flare at me. He thinks he's so intimidating, it's hilarious!

I'd get a better picture, but that's as far out of his log as he will come when I am in the room! Prolly coz I have moved his cave (with him and eggs/fry) to another tank previously. He is such a good daddy he won't be separated from his babies

Hi, guy's I'm hoping you can help me out. I have a female bnp and I'm trying to get her a perfect hide, I've tried pleco pipes but she wouldn't use them and recently tried a coconut cave which she used once they didn't bother again. I'm wanting something only she can fit into and not my elephant nose who has started chasing her. Any help on this would be great thanks.

If you have Fluval products there, they make a ceramic cave and tubes. Work really well. Or put a small piece of slate on its side and angle it, creates a "wall". Out of sight out of mind
Wow - gonzo is a bully !!!!! That is so unusual for elephant nose

Hi, bkiggy, yep we get fluval here I'll take a look tomorrow, needing something. It's either a hide for her or my other tank but I think it will be too small. Yep gonzo is a big bully lol he's very territorial happens when they mature.

Try a burrito pipe. You can order them online. They're also great for breeding
