got him at the LFS to live with my oscar and they said he was maybe a common, maybe a sail fin or something else I don't remember.

Well the thing is that many many different species are called "common pleco".

I second that. his marking look nothing like my commons. The number of rays helps determine the species.

Stick a piece of cucumber on a fork or something to weight it down. He'll come out of hiding to nibble on it, LOL.
