It looks like a common pleco to me.and if is yes it will get too big for a 29 gal. But lets wait for someone else to say something I'm still new ish

I had to put a common pleco in 29 gallon tank. For a short time when I had to sell my 70 gal. He was just to big he could kick the sand all the why to the top of the tank. And it ended up breaking my HOB filter from the sand :-(

Mine is about 12"
