after the holidays,and get him out of there.
For me, I say that bristlenoses are aggressive only at feeding time.
Right now, I have 4 large adults and 2 sub adults from last years breeding that i could catch and they mostly act bad when there is food in the tank. Normally the dominant one(s) feed first - I place around 3-4 sinking tablets, around .5mm wide - while the others wait. Then the others get to eat after the dominant ones got their fill. Other than that, it just a minor squabble here and there, i really need to get rid of some, but they impossible to catch!
