    Hey guys, got a Bristlenose catfish from. The pet store not long ago but the more i pay attention to its details im 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.

    I don't think that's a bn, but I don't think it's a sailfin either

    I think you are right, either a Sailfin or common. Here is a pic of a BN male I once kept. 20190422_184855.jpg

    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)....

    And another. Ancistrus cf cirrhosus
