What type of Pleco...?

I'm pretty sure the one on the right is a common, but the other one has different colors and patterns. Just curious if it's a diffferent type.

I was thinking he's maybe a Tiger Pleco, but not too sure.

He's the one that unexpectedly came with my tank and survived more than 2 hours without water. Seems to really get along with my other, bigger Pleco, they're together a lot.

Pretty little thing.
Can you get pictures of the head?

Fish have taken over my house. I threw away my couch to make room for another 125 gallon.

He's a VERY nervous little Pleco, and he's only like 2-3 inches long. It's tough to witness him out in the open, but I'll see what I can do

No one knows if it's a different type? Thought there were quite a few people into Plecos here. Hmm...maybe I just need better pics of him.

I am pretty sure he is a different type, better pics to confirm the right species.

Was he sold to you as a "common" pleco?

No, my other, bigger one was sold to me as a Common...this little guy I obtained accidentally.

Several weeks back when I got my new tank, it came with all the gravel, and went I got home, after like a 2 hour drive, I noticed he was lying on the gravel, so I quickly made a makeshift quarentine tank, a plastic bin with some of my other aquarium water in it, and put him in there and he made out well. He's still really shy though, spends most of his time under rocks.

Sucks how the previous owner of the tank seemed to have forgotten about him... But he's doing alright now.
