Welcome to PlanetCatfish!
Your new pleco is certainly not a bristlenose. It is most likely either Pterygoplichthys pardalis or Pterygoplichthys disjunctivus (or a farmed hybrid of these). Tell them apart by looking at the belly pattern: P. pardalis has a spotted pattern, where P. disjunctivus has a vermiculated pattern.
Both get big.
