New pleco

So I picked up this little guy and I was wanting some input. I was told it was a candy cane pleco and I just wanted to verify.

It actually looks more like a clown pleco (L104) to me. But, the L204 and the L104 are very closely related, so I am not positive.

Ya, the first one is a clown pleco, an L-204 showing that pattern would be much larger in size. Both the clown and the royal are Panaques, eat wood and poop sawdust.
