That's better than what I have been bale to find. The only thing that looks a lot dofferent is the nose seem to more blunt on this one where the Watermelon is more pointed and shovel shaped.

He's certainly not a royal pleco. We have those at work, and I know he looks that way from the photo, but I think it was just the angle. Plus they eat wood, and mine doesn't have the taste for it. He's at least 8 cm in length. The dimensions of my tank are 92cm L x 46cm W x 56cm H. Like I said, I believe it's the angle of the photo; I'm pointed at about 45 deg. against the glass. The glass distorts his true size.

Now it looks like a watermelon pleco, lol. Not the first time I have been fooled by glass and won't be the last I might bet.

I'm not certain on this, but he may actually be a sailfin. I counted 13 rays on his dorsal fin indicating that he's of the Pterygoplichlys genus.
