    I know this bristlenose pleco is still too young to tell for sure whether male or female (only about 2 inches long plus 2 inches of long fin tail), but any early guesses anyone?

    I don't know if it is boy or a girl, but it sure is beautiful.

    Looks maybe male, but we shall see.

    Such a beautiful fish!!! Im guessing female though. My males had stubs at that age. Either way, the long finned are my fav!!

    Very nice long fin! I'm gonna say female too. Males usually have some sort of bristle or other male signs when they are 2 inches long.

    +1 to the female.

    A nice LFA female :)

    When I got my albino they had a long fin there and I really wanted that one, but I just wasn't willing to pay the price diff that they had.

    Funny... I didn't know they came in a long fin variety. She's definitely female.

    :;laughing Which rock have you been hiding under??

    I knew about the LF'd ones before I even knew that they were called BN's XD

    Looks female at this stage at least.

    They reputedly live 10 years or more so surely must be worth paying the extra for.

    Divide purchase price by ten to get the cost per year! (and compare to other fish)

    I have one of those too! But its tinny! I hope it ends up being long finned like yours is. So pretty!
