ancistrus cf. cirrhosus is what we know as the common bristlenose. Amazingly enough this fish is traded all over the world but has never been formally described. There's some people that think this "common" might itself be a man made version.
Anyway, using the age old definition that if they can breed and produce fertile offspring then we see this ancistrus cf. cirrhosus now in these varieties
- albino blue eyed
- green dragon
And I'm sure I've missed a few. So, highly doubtful that this is a crossbreed. What you do have is a batch of nicely patterned ancistrus cf. cirrhosus

Out of those options, which would these be most likely to be classified as?

As "commons" I'm afraid. I've never heard of a special name for a nicely patterned somewhat blond normal ancistrus.
That's the thing with these. If you could breed a really outrageous colour variety you could make a few bucks but good looking healthy normal commons are extremely common in shops

Well maybe that will be worth a shot when I have some time to research it fully.
Interestingly, the store got very excited when I showed them the fry. They thought that they will be able to sell them for a fairly high price. I guess we will wait and see how the demand goes. I've seen really common fish go for quite high prices some times.
With a little luck, maybe it can be my fry that get the high price. Haha, one can dream :-)

They are indeed nicely patterned, so though it's a common they'll be easy to sell I think. A store gets excited when that's the case I think.
So its a Ancistrus NP (nicely patterned) Cirrhosus hahaha. Great the store wants them.No Cory, No Glory !!
