It's likely a common pleco, Hypostomus punctatus... but there are so many species that look really freakin similar. That's the most common fish labeled pleco in the trade. They get huge, they're territorial as adults and need driftwood, crustaceans and vegetation in their diet.

And they are notorious poopers. Be prepared to do lots of water changes when he gets a little bigger. Having said that, they are pretty cool fish.

Good luck.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

They're basically aquatic cows, always grazing and always pooping.
