Peppermint bristlenose colour?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Do peppermint bristlenose lose/change colour as they mature? More specifically the white edging on their dorsal and tail fin.

The reason I ask is that I saw some small pepps (2-3cm) on the weekend at a LFS and they looked awesome!

Really vibrant white spots and the white edging as mentioned above. Looked like the pic below:


I haven't seen many pepps in the flesh but bought some recently around the 6-7cm mark and there is not much if any of the white edging. Like below:


So is this something they lose as they get bigger? Or is it a case of some have it and some don't?
