So my LFS sold me this little guy as a Galaxy Pleco, however as I’ve been looking at them they seem more like a starlight BN. Any pleco experts that could provide some assistance?

L183 I'd say. (Or maybe L181)

How big is it about? Because it still is young has white tip fins. If larger probably galaxy that gets 10in or bigger pleco of sort.

If tiny like 1in or 1.5in maybe starlight or peppermint, these have confusing L numbers. a starlight is a BN and will max out at about 4in.
Here is a baby starlight. But as I said is a BN and they don't stay cool looking as adults. Here is adult picture as well.

Tiny little guy. Looks a lot like the first photo, so I think it's a starlight BN.
