Bristlenose pics

Just snapped a couple of pics of my albino bristlenose pleco. He turned one year old this month! Enjoy!

Peace,

I raise my sword in the air in the battle against clado. I have been beaten in this battle but the war is not over. As my wounds heal I amass another army, an army with many legs, an army of Amano's......

I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.

I recently got one of non albino variety but he doesnt have those bristles. Do they start developing those later in life or is it a gender thing?

Females tend to have less bristles than males. On my female, there is some bristles although it is only like a mm long.

How long is your plec?

My male started sprouting tentacles when he got about 2 to 3 inches long. My female still doesn't have any signs of bristles, her nose is completely smooth. She's also a lot smaller, only measuring about three inches, whereas the male is at about five.

Well upon closer inspection, it appears that he does have a few very short bristles. Hes only a longer than 1 inch though so age might be the factor.
