Hi,they are looking like females to me.Usualy at 7cm you can see small bristles on top of their snouts if they are male.It has been known for it to take a little longer though sometimes in my experience so my advice is to wait a little while longer to be 100% sure or pair them up and see what happens.


Bristlenoses Very Happy

theres currently 1 male albino around 8cm in the tank. So i was hoping for 2 females i had a feeling they were females as my male only around 0.5cm larger already has bristles up his face. Thanks for the input though Smile.
