I'd say either a Pario-Ancistrus Pleco or a Peppermint Pleco.

I think yours has a few more spots than a peppermint. I am not sure, plecos can be pretty hard to ID.

One of my wholesalers call them butterfly plecos or gold spot butterfly plecos. I am 99% certain thats what it is, peppermints have MUCH smaller spots and are white spots not gold. Gold spots don't have the enlarged dorsal fin. I will call my wholesaler tomorrow and get the scientific name and let you know
