Can anyone tell me the proper name of my BN ive seen calico and pi...something referenced and im unsure if that's what he is? He's not as red as he looks in the second pic that was just lucky lighting, my OH describes him as if he has some disease/skin condition Sad

yeah, we know them in Aus as either a marble or a calico bristlenose. They are a colour morph of the common bristlenose.
