Question I can't figure out my pleco breed

hi, just wondered if anybody would beable to tell me what breed of pleco i have? i have had him about 6 months now, my partner is into fish but im just learning.
some have told me tiger, king tiger and i have also been told some sort of sun pleco?
i bought him for 15 but the place i got him from thought he was a new breed (priced at 40) until they were informed buy somebody they thought he may be a king tiger so the price was dropped.
sorry about the quality of pics but i have tryed to put on as many as possible. many thanks if you can help.

from the looks of it it looks like it could be a tiger pleco

i think that it is a flash pleco (l204) because the markings are not thick enough to be a tiger plec

WOW that is some bright gravel. The black brings out the pink A LOT. Cool, but it blurs the pics.

RIP fire eel
why did you think it was a good idea to keep going over the top of the tank
when you realized you couldn't breathe outside water?
