When will bristlenoses breed?

I've had the male for two weeks and the female for about 5 days. I'm wondering when they will lay their first batch of eggs.

how big is the tank. i breed mine in a 10 or 20 gallon. to help encourage them to breed i do cool 25% water changes every other day, make sure there a cave or a flat rock for them to get under to lay the eggs . i also feed mine can green beans and sinking cichlid pellets for the protean .

Bobs right. Most success will come from temps 78 - 82. Mine all breed at around 78 every about 5 weeks
