The 1st one is definitely a common. How big is he now?
The 2nd one looks like a common bristlenose, but a clearer pic would help.

I hope that's a long tank!

Your pleco will enjoy the extra length- they are big slouches during the day, but get busy at night. They can shoot from one side of the tank to the other so quick it's like they teleported!

Hhahah yes! If he gets too big I will rehome him.. He loves his log during the day and at night he's always out..

The second pleco species is a bristlenose for sure.
