Fish id please

I got this guy from my lfs. He was marked as a bumblebee pleco. I've been looking on the net for pics of them but none seem to look quite like mine. The closest I've been able to find is a tiger pleco. Not the best pic cuz he hides a lot but any info would help. Click image for larger version

Yep, looks like a Clown Pleco to me as well.

They need wood to eat. Driftwood.
