Interesting...

My common pleco used to poop in a huge long string but it was more like a little tube. He was also 6 or 7" long at the time.

Have you seen your bristlenose poop before? I never had a bn but the poop is the first thing that came to mind with your description.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Next time you see it, see if it's attached to your pleco. That's how I figured out what mine was (ewwwww....)
