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!

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.
