I use a 30g plus tank for just a pair of bristlenoses but you can keep other fish with them - not a group of angels in a 30g tank though.
Zerbra loaches grow to about 3, need to be in groups and will eat bristlenose eggs & fry.
If you already have a 20g you should eb using it fro the baby bristlenoses rather than a 10g.

Snails are easy to remove with bottle traps and if they are trumpet snails loaches won't eat them.



Actually they are pouch or tadpole snails and there is a few of them.....would zebra loaches eat them?

Actually, Botia modesta will! Twisted Evil Cracks the tip right off and slurps them out the back way! It's amazing!
Of course, they get beyond 8 inches which is why I gave mine to my local zoo last weekend... Crying or Very sad

Please tell us the actual tank measurements & the water depth.

B modesta can make a mess of fingers too!

That is only five gallons after substrate.

Get the 20g ready for the babies ASAP.

Please stop quoting all of previous posts - it is only needed when answering a much earlier post.

Torres, I have a tank that exact size... I wouldn't keep baby bristlenoses in there for long. I imagine they'll quickly outgrow it, especially 45ish of them.

Also, if you're going to be breeding the bristlenoses... do you have a plan to get rid of the offspring? Sell them to the LFS, etc? I would guess that they'd like to know ahead of time if that's your plan, versus you walking in with a bucket of baby b/ns and asking if they'll take them off you're hands. Just a thought for the future Smile
