I a new Comer in bristle nose pleco
I have some successes in breeding them. But I have experience a complete die off of all the babies when they reach the length of around 1 inch.
It's heart breaking
MY water parameters are good
No change in feeding pattern and food
Just can seem to get the to survive beyond one incj
Any advise is welcome

Hi and welcome to fishlore.
Bristlenoses are easy to breed as you have found out. If you are getting fry to 1 inch there must be a reason why they are dying off. You say that there is no change to diet and that could be a reason. What do you feed while they grow to that size? When they approach that size it may be that you need to feed something like zucchini on a regular basis. Also some really well aged driftwood that has been in an aquarium for some time because they will actually also feed on that.
They love veggies and even algae.
Not sure what else to suggest.
Hope you have better luck in future.
