    he would be about 3-4cm long and his fins a quite large becaise my dad has a BN pleco and its the same age and its fins look smaller compared to mine i will tank another few pictures when he comes out because he keeps hidding behind the heater also he is more of a tan colour insted of being dark like my dads bristle nose who is the same size
