Type of Pleco

Howdy!

I've had this guy for about 10 months. I'm looking for help.

What kind of Pleco is this?

That looks to me like a rhino pleco. If I see correctly it has 2 little protrusions by its eyes like horns. Kind of dark and lighter brown and a big sail looking fin? That would be a rhino pleco.

Yes, there are two fleshy looking things in front of the eyes. He changes his color... sometimes is dark brown all over, some times there are large patches of light brown.

Thanks!

Mine gets blotchy (dark and light brown) looking when he gets riled up and has a big sail fin.
