YouTube - What type of fish is this?
Looks like gold or albino chinese algae eater to me.
Not a very nice communtiy fish, they become increasingly aggressive as they mature which could cause damage and or stress to other tank inhabitant's

You may want to bring it to your LFS rather than risk the lives of your current fish.

+3. As they get older they are well known to attach to other fish and feed off of the slime coat. Not good if you are the fish getting de-slimed.

yum yum, slime coat... Definitely an albino CAS, they do a great job when young, terrible when old. They can also get quite big.

It would probably be a good idea to return him, giving him a good home might be at the expense of giving your other fish a bad home...
