Nice little son of a gun, he went straight to work. I like him. It was written Ancestrus Sp. on the glass and someone also told me it's an Ancestrus Temminckii.

Is there an L-# for these guys?

Already responded but maybe you missed it.

It's a common bristlenose. It does not have an L number. L numbers are only applied to undescribed wild type species.

The common bristlenose is a tank strain and a possible hybrid of several species of Ancistrus.

Some people call the juveniles Ancistrus temmicki. But the real Ancistrus temmicki is a very rare fish in the hobby and is not exported. Juvenile common bristlenose look like Ancistrus temmicki but they don't look like that when adults.

Afraid so. Although it will keep them for a good long time as this is just a little guy and has a lot of growing to go.
