Definitely not a Tiger pleco. Can you try to get some better pictures? It would make it a lot easier to ID.

Here is what I get on the Tiger Pleco
Hypancistrus sp "L066"
Min. Tank Size
75.7 Litres (20 US G.)
10.2-12.7cm (4-5 ")
5.8 - 7.0
25 -29 °C (77-84.2°F)
Except when juvenile, these prefer a meaty diet. This can consist of live and frozen foods such as bloodworm, chopped mussel and prawn and sinking dried foods. Algae and other vegetable matter is not taken, but the occasional slice of cucumber or courgette might be nibbled at.
Not difficult to maintain under the correct conditions; we strongly recommend keeping it in a tank designed to simulate a flowing stream with a substrate of variably-sized rocks, sand, fine gravel, and some water-worn boulders.
This can be further furnished with driftwood branches, terracotta pipes, plant pots, etc., arranged to form a network of nooks, crannies, and shaded spots, thus providing broken lines of sight.
Like many fishes that naturally inhabit running water it’s intolerant to accumulation of organic pollutants and requires spotless water in order to thrive. Weekly water changes of 30-50% tank volume should also be considered routine.
Though torrent-like conditions are unnecessary it does best if there is a high proportion of dissolved oxygen and some water movement in the tank meaning power filter(s), additional powerhead(s), or airstone(s) should be employed as necessary.
