Hey! I believe it is known as snowball or inspector pleco. Either L142 or L201. First time I am able to take a pic with light on!

Absolutely stunning. Unfortunately my pleco has a bad eye that's very sensitive. If he keeps that one eye shaded he's fine, but if its not he freaks.

Yes and No
Bristlenose are usually the common name for Ancistrus species.

L240 are Scientific Name Leporacanthicus cf. galaxias(l240)

Yes the males have some Odontodes ( my new word of the day ) but not the same as common Bristlenose Plecos.

I'm a member of Planet Catfish
I learn new stuff there all the time.

L240s eat a lot of meaty foods. And they are gorgeous fish
