does anyone know how to tell a male farlowella vittata from a female? I saw some(about 6 farlos) in a LFS but none of them have the bristles on their nose. So, only conclusion is that they are juveniles (5"). I am interested to get 2 due to space constraints and would prefer to get 1 male and 1 female. Anyone have any ideas?

There is supposed to be a sexual dimorphism or difference, in the nose tip..bulbous and not bulbous appearance..a small but noticeable difference.
I did see differences, but not confirmed as correct for sex difference.

I'm going to be adding some of farlowella too.
