Look's like they are common Bristlenose to me even the bottom one as they sometime's get that colouration on them. They dont start to get bristle's on there face until about 5 to 6 cm if they are male.

I've heard that only male bristlies develop bristles - anyone know if that's true?

This is a female Ancistrus SP3

Thanks very much Rob :D

I saw the picture of your sp.3 earlier and realised that they are the same. Mine is about 2 inches at the moment, but doesn't have any bristles yet.
