total guess here but is that a bristlenose pleco? I think that's the one I saw the other day. I only the name of two different types of pleco and common was the other one.

I could be wrong, but don't believe he is a bristlenose -- I have one and he doesn't look like that one ----

oh please don't say you are wrong -- you could be right -- he is young so maybe that is exactly what he is!!! Let's see if anyone else out there can help us!!
We agree he is a pleco!! LOL

I used to have what was sold to me as a rubberlip pleco, the store told me it would stay under 4 inches, NOPE! it looked almost exactly like that, the eyes weren't quite as prominent or colorful. Its spots faded as it got a little bigger. I'm not saying that's what your pleco is, just tossing out a suggestion. Nice looking fish you have there though.

edit: heres a link to an image from a google search for rubber lip pleco http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a241/Zaela/fish/DSC_0034.jpg

I (third?) some kind of chaetostoma. Cutie! Love their noses! :1luvu:
His body is the same exact shape as my rubber nose, and he has the same stress bars. Except mine has a red tail - but he didn't when I first got him (at under an inch).

LOL the first time i read your post Abigael04 for some reason the word red didn't register in my mind, thought you were saying yours has a tail, but didnt when you first got it.
