This is my first pleco and i was just wondering what kind it was so i can look after it properly. I thgough it was a common pleco at the store but it has more of a brown base color than the black the commons have. Sorry for the bad pics. Thanks for any help.

I agree, definitely a common. They grow large so you will need a tank in the 100 gallon range.
