Bristlenose?

I got this guy some time ago at about half its current size. He was sold to me as a bushynose or bristlenose. I've not seen any since. Could anyone ID this guy?



I'll get better pictures in a week or so. hopefully sooner

It sounds about right. Assuming it's big enough, it looks like a female (males "bristles" branch off)

Bristlenose Plecostomus (Ancistrus sp.)

www.scotcat.com or www.planetcatfish.com might have it on there, I am not sure but hopefully one of those sites can help. Do they have ich? It looks like white spots on them, but I can't tell what they are
