Why isn't my bushy nose pleco's nose bushy?
hi everyone, today i got a baby bushynose pleco from my LFS and it doesnt have a bushy nose. is this because it is a baby and they don't grow the bristles until later or is it not a bushynose? thanks
Could be a young female in which case bristles will be fewer to none, compared to that of Male.
Should be able to tell by three inches ,what the sex is for sure.
Smaller than this,,it is hard to tell IME.
I've decided you can tell male/female at the two inch size. I only say this as I have one of each, aquired both at the one inch mark. My male started getting his bristles when he reached two inches.
mine is about 1.25in. i hope it is a male because i want a lot of bristles! they are so cute! thanks guys
he probably shaves when you turn out the lights.. lol jk
Hrmm, sorry to mooch off this, but 2 inches? I just got a new one, it's about 2 inches, and it only has visible bristles around it's mouth. Interesting....
