Hi Fellow Five Dockian lol

there definitely orange spots the female is a lil small for breeding had mine breed the first time for me last month but the male kicked out the eggs, around once the female is 8-9cm female they will start to breed.

What else do you have in the tank, Mine were in a grow out with some Africans i moved them away and they were alot happier afterwords. keep them separated and make sure were the cave is place wood ontop so there is a shadow at least 5cm before the entrance of the cave.

cheers

imo its a young male !

females get bristles mainly when there much larger

females body shape are wider

when you take new photo take a side shot of the head just to see if bristles go up the head or not !

i find them in regards to breeding finiky like peps because they are very similar to them in regards to species wise. I gave them coverage such as driftwood because of the fact of there behavior which made them feel alot more at home. I used your standard log that you can get from Sloany on the forums here. I have noticed with breading bristlenose the tighter the cave the better. Have the cave be the size the the male will just fit in you dont want gaps that if the female does get in it can get out. thats the problem with the slate caves although some L breeders swear by them. They dont breed the same size as other ancestrus i.e bristlnose common longfins albinos ect like i said closer related to peps so give them time and they will be ok.
