I've had this fish for almost 2 months now, and the bristles are coming in. However, I've read online that females can also have small bristles. Any one have any advice on what sex it might be? It's about 2.5 inches, if that makes a difference.

Likely a male, females that small usually don't show bristles. If there's a row of them running up the middle of the snout it's definitely a male.
