It's too bad the pics are blurry. Is there anyway to get some clearer ones taken? I couldn't begin to hazard a guess based on these pics. What are your thoughts on the ID??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Kind of hard to tell with the blurry pictures, but he looks like a clown pleco to me. Should stay under 5" and needs driftwood in his diet. These can be very lazy fish, so don't expect to see a whole lot of him.

Looks like a Clown to me too. Maybe a bit skinny as well. As batman said, you need driftwood in their diet to keep them healthy, as well as algae wafers and shrimp pellets, or the like. Mine never got past 3" in 1 year, so they either grow very slow or are just small.
