Rubber lip? Or female bristle nose?

When I first got my male bristlenose pleco I hardly saw him for over 6 years. Now he comes out pretty often (even with the lights on). Though my female is put more than the male.

Chances are yours are just hiding and are probably coming out when you aren't around

They are POOP machines! You won't believe all the sludge you'll get out of your filter! I only had two bristle noses in my 20, and I was so grossed out by all the poop that I gave them to my LFS. I couldn't handle it, but it doesn't seem to bother some people.

If you clean your substrate and filters on a regular basis, that one happen.
