He's fully grown at 3 and a half inches, and he's about 2 years old. He almost looks like a really little sailfin, actually...
Anyone have any ideas why he's acting like that? Maybe he's not even a Clown? The pet store we bought it from had him so long they didn't even have it on file anymore and they sold it to me for 20 bucks.
Without photo it is very hard to say.
Description of the fishes activity reminds me of maybe Candy stripe Pleco that looks very similar to the clown pleco but is more active.
Could very well be a number of other species as well.
