Very nice, but if it is indeed a common pleco they quickly grow a foot long. I hope you have a big tank!

I really like Pleco's, I'm looking to get one in my 120g when I get it. I agree that it looks like the Common Pleco.

That second picture makes him look a little chubby ;)

That's a common pleco and one of the healthier common plecos I have ever seen posted here.

My common used to eat algae, even in adulthood. He actually pretty much ate everything available. Not all commons stop grazing algae as they get older.
