    Bought this pleco as a common, just seeing if any of you have any idea what kind it may be. I suspected gold spotted, but i still don't know.

    kinda looks like it could be a BN pleco (but it looks a bit darker than others ive seen) they are a common pleco sold but useualy as bristle nosed pleco. it doesnt look like the monster common pleco but i could be wrong. im not the best at iding plecos but BN is my guess

    It's a very good guess but Im not going to commit until I get a side view.

    You do know that a "common" quite easily reaches a length of 12 inch? A 100 gallon would be absolute minimum to keep an adult specimen.

    Oh yes, i do know. I'm upgrading to a 55g soon, then a 100g by November. Here's a side view, when he's in the light for a long time he turns a lighter shade and when he's in the dark he gets blacker. I haven't seen that before.

    Definitely not a bristlenose. It looks like one of the species sold as commons to me.

    Tricky with the dorsal fin down but the eyes and the shape of the nose make it no bristlenose.

    Could be one of the marbled sailfin varieties

    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

    Agreed, certainly looks like something from the glyptoperichthys family, possibly l001..
