I bought this guy in my LFS he is a little bit bigger than average one but he looks way to good and he ads some personality to the tank

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.
