I, currently have six of these fish that produce babies during the fall when water temp get's a bit cooler and feed em same food's as other fishes including loaches,cory's.
New life spectrum,Omega one flakes,cichlid pellet's,carnivore pellet's,spirulina wafer's,krill,chopped earthworm's,tetra bit's,and once or twice a week zucchinni,romain lettuce,or fleshy side of bannana skin.
Would not be too worried about animal protein's that the Bristlenose might happen to scavenge, but would include the vegetable matter.
New life spectrum is hard to beat for Vegetable matter and fruit's that these fish like.
Yes I believe BNs can do alright with other foods as long as the owner is aware of the diet situation, I wasn't.
