Bristlenose Plecos!

Found two stunning Bristlenose plecos at my Lfs. I was gonna get some kribensis but I already have GBR so I though it wasn't a good idea. So far they are doing well and I will post some pics. Anyone who has these please feel free to post pictures or shoot at me any information as I have only researched these little guys once before. Thanks again, Sam.

I hear yah...I just got my 2 yesterday and one is 1 inch and the other is close to 2 so I am hoping for a pair as well (with hopes they will breed too)...also I HEARD or READ that males will have all those bristles on their nose and the females won't, have you heard that?
