Thanks for the replies guys. she is probably twice the size now that she was in that pic, and still definately no bristles. And the one I think is a male had 3 or 4 bristles when he was small like you mentioned tankman, Although the male is a darker colour than the female so he may be a different variation to her...

The 40g has only been cycling for a week but I've been doing daily water changes as it's a dirted tank. It has an old cycled filter on it aswell as the new one and also some plants in there already too, The male has been in there about 3 days now and seems happy so I may introduce the rest of the fish this weekend and see how they go

Well after another water change in the 40g I have transferred the 8 neons in with the male, all fish seem happy. I moved the driftwood around a bit too so I think I will give the male BN a bit more time to make himself at home before I introduce the female, I will transfer her into the tank along with the driftwood that she currently calls home so hopefully this will seperate the territory between the two fish...

Well they've been in the new tank a few days now and the female is still the boss... Any sight of the male and she chases him away, and any sight of her and he will run, he's definately scared of her. I could isolate her for awhile by herself in the old tank but i'm not sure this will do anything for the situation... Should I look for a replacement BN?

There isn't something 'wrong' with her, she's just aggressive is all. Some fish are and some fish aren't. I personally wouldn't worry about it since she isn't attacking him, as long as he's still getting food he'll be fine until he's more comfortable.

I would definitely get rid of it. When i added mine nothing like this happened. Plus you dont know if this will ever stop. Just trade her in for another female.
