I saw one of the most handsome plecos today and had to buy it. It was named a marbled horned. I never seen one before but I once had a rhino pleco. It looks like a marbled rhino pleco. Any one ever hear of these?:help:

Its probably the same thing. Common names can vary quite a bit. Thats why we often use the binominal name to identify fish

If its anything like the one I just bought (sold under the completely wrong name) its probably Pterygoplichthys scrophus..but a picture would help. And count the dorsal fin rays, if theres more than 10 its P. scrophus
