Hi,

Please could I have some help sexing my bristlenose?

He/She is around 8cm. It was bought as a female blue eyed bristlenose but with the bristles I’m a bit concerned that she is a he.

Sorry for the terrible photos. If you need more in different angles please just let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Probably female. Female bristlenoses only have bristles on their mouths like this one, whereas males are usually larger and have bristles all over their heads.

The bristles look small for the size of the pleco, I would guess female too
