bristlenose catfish

  1. Bristlenose needs Question (or Three)

    I've had the bigger on of the two (who is upright) for about 3 months and in that time she has grown nearly 5 inches. At first we thought she was a bristelnose catfish but she is now around 7 - 7 1/2 inches long and looks to be still going so either she is a giant or we got it wrong. I know...
