Rubber Nose or common pleco...

How can I tell the difference? I purchased 2 plecos for my 55 today I went to my really good LFS in search of bristle nose but they were out so I got what was labled as a rubber nose and I just want to make sure I was not sold the wrong ones because I do not want them to out grow the tank.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Hi there sorry it tool so long but I finally managed to get a couple of what I think will be decent pics tonight I will upload them to my pc tomorrow because I do not have it with me tonight. They have white on the very tips of their tails and I have never seen a common or any other pleco with white tips on their tail.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda
