    Hi, I'm new here and i just want to know what kind of pleco is my fish. The pet store said it was an albino pleco. I wanna know what kind of pleco it is so i will know its full length. It is currently 2.2 inches in length.

    Need better angles of it to determine species. Doesn't really look like an albino but perhaps a low quality super red or calico bristle nose. The eyes would be different with a true albino and it would be more yellow-white than orange.

    Now it looks like an albino! Must of just been the lighting making it appear orange to me.

    It's hard to be sure when they are so small, but I will say its either a bristle nose or a common pleco. I'm almost leaning towards common based on the pair of barbles on its mouth, but let's hope it's a BN. Give it a few months and another inch or two of growth and you should be able to tell for sure.
