Bristlenose eggs usually take about 5 days to hatch and can start leaving the nest 10 days after that and then once they leave they r on their own to fend for themselves. Sometimes the males will kick the eggs out early which will need to be tumbled to continue the waterflow process. Not a difficult fish to breed really keeping large numbers of fry is a little harder due to food and waste causing ammonia etc problems for the youngsters. Hope this helps
