Bristlenose pleco

This is one of my favorite fish. My girlfriend tried to steal him/her many times. (idk the gender). Well normally he hides but today I caught him out!

It's a male if your wondering, the females don't get bristles as far as I know. Nice fish, hope mine looks that good some day.

I would say he is a Male as most females dont have many bristles and they are a lot shorter.

Nice fish glad he is coming out more.

How big is it? It looks male but if it's quite large it could be a female. Older females can get bristles. Beautiful fish btw. I have 3 albinos and 2 normal ones. One of my favorite fish.
