Anybody know what this is?

So I was browsing Practical Fishkeeping today, and I found a random picture of a Pleco. I think it looks awesome, so I wanted to know if anyone knew the species. Here's a link to the picture:

6 Betta Splendens

I believe that is a Sturisoma, though not sure which exact species; 17 are listed by Planet Catfish. You could go through the many photos of Sturisoma on Planet Catfish and may find it.
PlanetCatfish • Cat-eLog • Thumbnails of species

Odd that PFK didn't identify it; that is a very good periodical.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

That's for the resources, Byron :) I know, it was odd. Especially since it was an article about Apistogramma. I believe they were saying how A. Elizabethae needs a very low pH, and then the catfish. Thanks Byron :)
