Also, when trying to breed, make sure the male has a cave that has a little bit of flow past the entrance. The male will sit inside the cave and "fan" for a few days before the female comes and lays eggs.
When the eggs are inside the male will stay with them and keep fanning. Try not to shine a light into the cave or move the cave as the male can and probably will through the eggs out causing them to die before hatching.
After a while the eggs will hatch and lots and lots of little Bristlenose will start to swim around the cave. They will stay near the cave for a while before they head off on their own adventure.
What are you feeding the Bristlenose?
