What are your water parameters? (ammonia, nitrite & nitrate). How long have you had the bristle nose? What else can you tell us about your tank---size, all fish & how long you've had them, water change schedule?

What, besides veg on a fork, are you feeding? He looks nicely chubby. I see what you mean on his upper side but I agree with OG, not alarming. Do a few water changes within a few days & see if that helps.

David, welcome. That is a healthy looking BN.

What are "fine" water readings? Can you measure for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate in PPM with a test kit? What is your water change schedule and amount changed?

Continue to give proper care to your BN as it seems you are doing, and you may enjoy them for many years. I had one of them for 11 years (my personal record with a fish). I still miss that little fish!
