Looks just like my female Bristlenose, one of my favourite fish.

Thanks shelly. Do you think that's what it is? I'll need to change his name to a female if that's the case. Yes it's a cool fish, 'he's' to bids of the tank. Does yours flip out the spikes on it's gills when it's annoyed?

I think you should keep the name anyway..... I once had a rainbow shark named Ruby and it ended up he was a Mr Ruby.....
