    It's probably a pleco, probably a leopard bristlnose but it could be a more expensive snowball pleco.  If it grows whiskers, you will know it is a male bristlnose.  But the female bristlnose usually do not have whiskers.  If it is a leopard bristlenose, then it has a ton more spots than mine ever did.  And at 5 years old, my Squeegy has lost all of her spots.

    But it could also be a spotted Raphael catfish. which would have mouth whiskers that would not be visible in your pic.

    That looks like a Bristlenose pleco to me. If it is, they're really good at keeping fish tanks clean of algae and stuff.
