Looks like a little bushy-nose type, and what happened to the fin

His fin is there just kind of hard to see in the picture. He's only about an inch long right now but I'm expecting him to be about 6-8 inches by the time he's grown. The store we got him at is extremely good with fish and they said he would get about 6 inches and that they rarely ever got them in so we got one as soon as we could

So I have decided that the way the fish acts, moves and looks that it is some sort of a pleco. Does anyone else agree that it looks like one????

Beautiful calico pleco. My lfs sells them for 20 dollars. I might try to breed the calico pleco with long fins.

That's exactly how much my store sold him to me for and he's definitely worth it. He's only about an inch long but i can't wait until he gets bigger
