Please Help Identify This Pleco

Aflight

I've just gotten back into the hobby with a 45 gal tank and wanted to add a pleco (specifically a bristlenose) to my tank. My sister heard me say I wanted a pleco and since my birthday is near she decided to surprise me by bringing me home a pleco (nearest fish store is 2 hours away). Her intentions were good but she doesn't know what kind it is or how big it will grow. I'm hoping its a bristlenose but it has no bristles and she said she "thinks" it grows to 8". Also Id like to get your opinions on if it has fin rot. All of its fins are tattered with bones sticking out. She added the pleco and its water from the pet store into the tank so I'm pretty worried. I just finished treating for ick which I got from that same fishstore. Any suggestions or ids would help. Thanks guys.

Oh, dear! I can’t help you with identification, but all my sympathies on “helpful’ relatives!
