I was at Petco today(not the dismal local one) and I saw a pleco labeled as Borneo pleco. I can't seem to find anything about these online, so I'm guessing this is not the rightful name of whatever pleco it is. Has anyone heard of these? Maybe a not so common alternative name? I realize if they are mislabeled, then it would be awfully hard to know what it is, but I thought I'd give it a shot. They were only $6.95, so if I figured it was a species that stays smaller, I could go back tomorrow and get one in place of my common pleco. I couldn't see them very well, but the one out in the open looked much paler than a common, a sign of stress, perhaps. The only other one in the tank was hidden in a rock cave, so I couldn't get much off of that. I forgot to ask the sales person if she knew anything about them. Anyone know anything of this Borneo pleco?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
