Identify this Suspect!
I'm not sure if this is a common or what as his markings are different than the commons I'm used to seeing. Any help would be appreciated.

Looks like a common pleco to me. Commons are mixes of lots of kinds of plecos so the markings, and maximum size, can vary somewhat.

Make sure you have driftwood in the tank for him. It's a diet requirement. And make sure he gets his cucumbers, zucchini, blanched lettuce, etc, so he doesn't starve.

Going by body shape and head shape it's definitely a common. +1 to LHFinally reached 6 tanks... oh god, this addiction is getting serious. 75g mbuna tank, 65g gold severum, 55g OB peacock breeding colony, 30g(36x18) growout, 20 long Dwarf Alto's, 10g fry tank.
If I die young bury me in... An 8x2x2 with versa tops and a large sump for adequate filtration;)

...That is a very orange eye on that angel in the first picture.
The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

Actually, it's red. Thanks for all the info, the commons I'm used to seeing around here range from brown to black. Why I asked. Right now, I feed him a Hikiri Algae wafer everyday,plus he forages for leftover Tetra-Min. I do have natural Driftwood in the tank, he''s been eating on it. I gave him a small piece of lettuce yesterday, weighed it down with a small piece of lead wire which I removed after he was done(Translation; The lettuce was gone).
Have to try the Zucchini.
