I would put the 1 male and 2 female Bristlenoses in the 20 gallon tank with the female Guppies, as the fish in the other tanks will probably have a go at eating the eggs! Put the cave that your male Bristlenose is always in straight into the 20 Gallon tank with the Guppies while the Male Bristlenose is in the cave so that you dont have the hassle of taking it out of the cave. Also if your male Bristlenose likes that that cave so much it could be a spawning cave for them, try to place the cave somewhere in the tank were there is more current. You might want to put a few pieces of drift wood in the tank as well.

I got a little confused reading that! :? So is there going to be any fish in the tank that you are putting the Bristlenoses in?
