I have never heard of a pleco shark, and after a google search, all be it a very quick search, I can't find anything called a pleco shark. I'd hazzard a guess that you don't have a pleco shark but instead either a pleco, or a shark. Have you a photo and maybe we could try and identify it for you?

This is closest that I can come to plecos which are publically available and which have been termed "Pleco Shark" are.

Sounds like somebody is trading on one of the cyprinid algae eaters, like Chinese Algae Eater or Logsucker or somesuch. I mean, SAEs are in a similar group as Roseline and Rainbow Sharks, and if people will call a hilltream loach a hong kong pleco, well, they really can't be trusted to get anything but the marketing right.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
