Well I'm not sure then. I was leaning towards common. I'll try to get better pics once he's settled. In a dark tank now due to being stressed.a

Definitely a common or a sailfin. The body shape and head shape are all wrong for a bristle nose

I'd recommend putting him up for sale online. There are a lot of people who could house that pleco in a proper size tank. You just have to make sure that one of those people gets it instead of one of those idiots who just want it because it will grow big.

There are actually 2 commons that I found in my tanks. I'd like to rehome both as my mother already has two quite large ones in her tanks. Now that she's been exposed to more plecos that come in small sizes I am hoping to convince her that rehoming them is best.

It also helps that the smaller species are better looking.
