Help with pleco ID?
 
Any chance anyone can help ID my pleco? I bought him for $20 at my LFS, and they'd had him stow away with their shipment of bristlenoses from the breeder and had no idea what he was, but hypothesized that he was a clown, but he doesn't look that way to me, and he doesn't act like one. He is fully grown at 4 inches and just under a year and a half old. He LOVES cucumber, and won't TOUCH the wood we have in the tank. Here are some pictures (of him out in full light trying to get closer to me....)
