Hey guys, got a Bristlenose catfish from. The pet store not long ago but the more I pay attention to its details I'm unsure if it is infact a bristlenose I think it might possibly be a sailfin, any help? Ive added a few pictures I was able to get of him, hes a bit camera shy.
Thanks!

I think you are right, either a Sailfin or common. Here is a pic of a BN male I once kept.

In the second picture of the first post, you can see the white tip to the caudal fin. That identifies it as a juvenile Bristle Nose. Body shape is also consistent with Ancistrus.

Looks like it might be a female, but it is a brown bristlenose (commons and sailfins have a more angular head) as like chrome mentioned the white tip gives it away. No common/sailfin will have it.

Just another person agreeing with above... its just a bristlenose (a common shortfin bristlenose)....
