Your pleco may not be a male if its bristles are not as pronounced as they should be for males.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Yah lol... I was obseerving the tank and was checking to see if it had bristles and he puffed up his cheeks or something and spikes shot out. It looked so amazing but I haven't seen him do that again but I'm also at school 8 hours and home work occupies me
