i have not heard of Highfin bushynose.
how are the tail fins, are they long?

my guess is they are simply a renamed long fin, rather than a short fin bushynose with high dorsals.

at any rate, baby albino shortfins go for about $5 for 2 inch, long fins for 7-10 for 2 inch.
If you have a true new type, i'd say 10+.

Diet wise they eat the same as other bushynose.
plant matter.
cucumber, squash or red/yellow/green pepper.
you can try other fresh types but that is what most of us throw in there.
they mostly eat at night, so cut up a slice of squash, stick a fork thru it, and put it in the tank in afternoon.

bushynose breed like convicts, so in about 6-9 months you will have tons of them.

The picture is a "longfin ancistrus"
there is also an albino form.

somebody just changed the name from longfin to highfin.

they are actually one of the easiest fish to breed, next to convicts.
Bunch of people selling them on aquabid, but you may be the first to supply your LFS in the area.

Albino longfin bushynose have red eyes.
Its the norm.

They do well with many fish.
some cichlids will dive bomb them, some will ignore them.
