Hey everyone! I was at my friends place and we were inspecting his tank and I saw this pleco. We had no idea what kind it would be.
I took some pics so hopefully this helps!
Thanks!

Look at Ancistrus centrolepis in planet catfish I think this may be similar.

That pleco shouldn't really be in there with lava rock. Too rough for him. He should be in a mellow tank with driftwood present.

Yeah I know, it's my friends tank and I've told him. There is some drift wood in there but its just his Massive African jungle tank.
