Bristles on the nose are only found on males. No bristles means female

Goldie's are amazing. I bought two a few years ago. Lost one within a month but the second is almost 7" now.

Actually females have bristles as well, depending on the individual. They are alot less pronounced however.

Dude i love goldies, post a pic of your big one! Also the miscategorized pleco is a gold spot pleco. L001 i believe. If you payed the price for a common your lucky! they have very nice colors through maturity.

A few of my baby starlights I just got in today, my most prized posessions now. they are less than 1/2" in length! It's insane how small they are, I'd never send them at that size, actually, I wouldn't even sell them unless they were an inch!

(Don't mind my messy tank bottom in the one pic. I took it in the middle of vacuuming and apparently every bit of debris wanted to settle in that one area.)
