I've had him for about 2 months, he's very active, eats a lot. But he's very young, I can't even ID if it's male or female. On my receipt it simply says "algae eater" on the display tank it said Pleco only gets to 3in maximum. He has grown a bit since adopting. He's black, with small black eyes, a few white spots, white line on Dorsal fin, and white line on the tip of his tail. There's so many, so I'm just wondering opinions on which type he is?
