Anyone ever hear of a marble horned pleco?

A marble horned pleco? I was at my local fish store today just looking for stock ideas for my 40g breeder and saw it and decided to look it up to see if it could fit in the tank but cant find anything about it.

Could be the colors of it were stripes like dark brown, light brown, dark brown and light brown again. If that helps.

Ask the local fish store for the scientific name or pleco number. Common names sometimes confuse people and are hard to look up online.
