I know the picture is sort of brutal, but hes mostly brown and then has a yellow strip across his tail fin:

I have been trying to identify him forever. I've never really seen him in a fish store or anything either, but hes real nice.

In total Length Id say he is 7-8 inches? Its not a royal. Basically hes a darkish brown all over his body but a 1/8" yellow strip running the length of his tail fin on the top edge.

Hmmm I think he is a Rhino Pleco. Im actually looking for a good owner for him as I have torn down my fresh water tank and he's the last fish remaining.

They seem to be varying in price. I would be willing to let it go for $20 to a good owner. Ive seen them as high as $50.

My fave fish :( If anyone is interested PM me.

you have a rhino/chocolate pleco. They max out around 10-12". I have had one for a few years now and i suspect him to be full grown.. Nice plecos

Common Sailfin...

+1

but.. seeing how there is over 140+ different types of pleco it could be something simular but I would guess by the picture and size a sailfin.
