Pleco Questions

Are Bristlenose and Bushynose Plecos the same thing? I got what should be a longfin albino Bristlenose pleco today and I just want to make sure that it is in fact one that will stay small. Are the BN the only ones that come in the longfin variety?

They are the same..and there are lots of different longfins. Your bristle/bushy nose will stay small..probably around 4" at the max.

There is also a calico, red, and blue eye variation of this species.
