What kind of fish is this?

Hey guys, new here and didn't know where to post this.. So, sorry if this is in the wrong area. I bought a 5 gallon mini tank the other day, just more or less for a sick tank, and the guy I bought it off of had a couple fish in it. He had no idea what they were but told me I could have them. They look to be some kind of sucker fish, they hate the light, and have a couple whiskers. They seem to be scaleless, but I can't tell. And there color is like a dark brown with tan/orangish stripes. They're fairly small too. I tried getting the best pics I could, but they go into hiding as soon as you get near the tank..

Thanks for any help

They kind of look like Bumble Bee Catfish to me. Mine is very reclusive...very rarely see him.
