I was just looking at this myself.. And I totally agree with you on that. If it is indeed a hillstream loach, and they were sold as common plecs, what a find.. and how about the ignorance of who sold them..lol.

Yep it's a hillstream. An excellent buy I might add. I eventually plan to turn our 20L into a hillstream tank. (once all the bettas have died.) Yeah, I plan in advance.

I looked around online and they seem to be the same price as the common pleco, however I have never seen any of these around my area. So, Yeah, I think you got a good deal in the fact of it being sorta odd, if indeed they aren't common around your area.
