    I recently bought a " bristlenose" pleco. He is about 5 1/2 inches and has no bristles except two between his eyes. He has 12 dorsal rays and I would like to know what species he is.

    Welcome to the forum. Please note that this species grows quite large, so please try to have a plan in place for when he/she gets bigger.
