    I just bought this from the LFS but not sure what L species of pleco it is. The supplier tag says its a L333 but it doesn't look like an L333. Can someone help ID it??

    Looks like a starlight bristlenose to me from that pic but hang on for more opinions as plecs really aren't my forte.
    A clear side on pic with dorsal raised if you could get one would help the plec aficionados ID it better

    Maybe a peppermint?

    My LFS did mention it can grow to the size of a zebra pleco, so around 9-10cm
    I'll try to get a better pic of it too

    L181 / L182 ?

    Its either an L182 or really nice Pep. Once it matures, if the white strip on the dorsal fades, its a peppermint BN, if it keeps it's beautiful white tip, you have an L182. Im gonna say L182 straight off the bat, but I could be wrong there, i'm still newish to L's.

    Beautiful L nonetheless!
