    If you scored the one you pictured, a starry night pleco, for less than $25 you did really well. Most likely if you paid a lot less you would have one of the many variations of a common brown dwarf bristlenose.

    The bristles appear as prev stated, between 6 and 9mo.
    No it doesn't, that's a popular misconception. Wild bristlenose eat little to no wood as proven by gut analysis.

    I hope so he does have white edging on the fins and white spots but like you said there's a lot of diff. looking normal BN as well. Long term if it ends up a normal BN female I may have something like a starry night ordered for me and take him back to my LFS but for now it is content in my 29g and is doing a good job on all my green algae.

    Still ignoring my squash slices though.

    Currently have a 29g planted with 14 candy cane tetras, 6 sterbai corys, 6 melini corys, a roided out tiger angelfish and 1 mustache wearing albino longfin pleco.
    Oh and they all get along amazingly!!! went through 4 BN plecos and 2 angelfish until I got ones with the right temperament but it's the most mellow tank now.

    He still won't take any prepared foods I tried a few veggies and he ignores them; also like I mentioned the algae wafers get eaten by my corys b4 he could touch em if he even would try. I'm worried he isn't getting enough food but I can tell where he has eaten algae off the driftwood but he really needs to start eating prepared foods I just don't know how to get him to.

    Maybe I shouldn't of gotten such a small one that only ate squash at the store?

    Did you try broccoli? Or shelled peas? The peas will just sink. You can buy a veggie clip at the LFS (about $3) and clip the broccoli to it and stick it to the front glass.
