Looks like it could be a butterfly pleco.

My commons looked reddish when young.
He'll darken with age if he's a common.

if you mean L168 then it is definately not one of them, wrong pattern, wrong body shape.

if its not a common it could possibly be a Gibby but its hard to tell from the photo can you get anymore? Bad new if it is a gibby they can reach approximately 2 feet, does he look like any of these?
