The fish you have look's quite young,could develop stripes with a few more month's/inches of growth.

I'm betting it's either an albino that's been eating lots of carrots, or maybe a super red that hasn't. Both are the 'ol bristlenose plec: Ancistrus cf. cirrhosus • Loricariidae • Cat-eLog

I bought a mature female bristlenose that was in the plant tank at my LFS. No one even knew she was in there. I asked if I could have her, I was told no. The next week we went back and I asked for a female bristlenose. The guys there said "why a female" to which I responded "I like their look, without bristles" and instead of sexing the tank of juveniles they just sold me her.

tl:dr Female bristlenose don't have bristles :)

Some Female bristlenose have no bristles,and some females will sport a few short bristles around the mouth, but not as extensive, or as high up on the forehead, as the males of this species.
