I had hoped to get a dark black one (as I think they are prettier) and hoped to breed them. guess i'll have to wait a bit, hopefully next time I head to the store in a while they have a regular variety.
Hi Dragonfyre; I have spawned and sold 100s of Bristle nose and over those years I found 7 Albinoes. I lost all but two so yes I agree they are more sensitive. I have not lost a fish for over 17 yrs. other than a few fry.. I think these ones will make it now. They are almost 3 inches now and very cool. I plan to breed them back to my wild stock and see what I get.
Did not look to see where you live but I have about 400 Dark Spotted Bristlenose.
