I have three bristlenoses all around 2 1/2" long. None of them have bristles yet. The place I got them from, though, has a pair of pleco fanatics on staff, and these fellows came from a fellow who had just bred them. From my research into this, I am given to understand that bristlenoses don't really get their bristles until they're at least 3" long. That said, the lighter one has patterning very much liike two of mine, and the little barbles high on the head are just about the same as on the ones I have too.
Pretty sure they're bristlenoses, you lucky duck, you. Sweet little fish they are.
