    Thanks again!

    I may not be right but i think the albino ones are a little smaller than the normal one like mine

    Yes, albinos are a bit smaller. My 3 are all around 4 inches full grown.

    Looking at the head size and colour, this looks more like a L034 to me. Ancistrus Ranunculus or "Medusa Pleco". Basically an all black BN, with a wider head. They also like warmer temps than bristlenose, and are more omni-carnivores than algae eaters.

    I could definitely be wrong though.

    @slayer5590 might be able to confirm if I am correct, or if it's just a BN.

    Without a catch location there is no way to tell which ancistris species it could be.
