Oh wow that's really beautiful. Congrats.

This bristlenose has several names, depending where you live.

Peppermint Bristlenose or Starlight Bristlenose are the most common names.

He was 19$ I got him from a fish store that just opend in my town... He has a golden nugget pleco... I wanted him too lol but I already have a common pleco and won't have another tank for him... He has this leopard discus... All sorts of cool fish lol. 19$ seemed high for a fish but I thought I would take a chance.
