    Defaultbristlenose or common?

    my pleco, swim pickens, was sold to me from a pet store without a species name.
    they didnt know what he was. can any of you guys tell?

    hes only about 3cm long, real small little feisty guy. hes really active day and night, always hangin out with my betta.

    hes currently in a 10 gal but i need to know what he is so i can get him up to the appropriate size tank when he gets bigger (and how big hell get)

    I agree with the above. My own Bristlenose looks very similar.
