Hi all! I bought this pleco, they told me it was a bristlenose/bushynose. It was very small a skittish so haven't been able to get a good look at it. It's growing like crazy and in looking closer, I don't see bushynose affect. I am probably going to have to take it back anyway but was wondering if you could give me some insight before I do. Thanks!

Looks like a standard Bristle-nose Pleco to me. Could be a female since it's the males who develop the bristles, or it could still be young and have not developed the bristles yet.
