Lemon Bristlenose have been difficult to breed in the past.  They were very inbred, weak, and slow-growing.  Therefore, we made it a project to out-cross them to improve vigor.  We first crossed them into some nice Reds.  The resulting brown offspring were then crossed back to Blue Eye, resulting in 50% of the next generation being very nice, vigorous Lemons.  These are what we are working with now - a definite step up from most of the stock you will find out there.  It took a few years to get the Blue Eye Lemon traits back, but it was well worth it.

Blue Eye Lemon Bristlenose

Got 1 along with my Angel's I ordered!! Wished I'd got 2 now for my 55. Put it in well planted and natural driftwood. Always see it munching on something. 100% Satisfied

We bought one of these guys for our 55 with our Select Koi (bought from here as well). He came healthy, he's already grown and he just chomps away at the driftwood. Very impressed with our purchases.
