I tried to get better picks but he was on the back wall of the tank and the chiclids of doom kept photo bombing me

I purchased this rhino approx a week a go he was kept in a tank with pacus at the store and was not being fed very well. When I introduced him to the tank I could see he was hungry but he didn't acknowledge the vegetables at all. Surprisingly on day 5 I dropped a juicy succulent cucumber in there and he found out what it was!!! He is now putting on weight and taking almost anything that falls to the bottom. Even better he is slightly territorial so when the chiclids try to take his vegetables, he rams them the out of his way!

This is Bartholomew, I believe him to be a leopard sailfin pleco. He was not bought as such and is growing like the most loveliest majestic weed in my little dainty tank. New home pending lol. I love him.

aliray's suggestion, I am putting a pic of our pleco here to be IDed!

This is our grandma's pleco that we recently adopted. She has had it for a very long time, I'll have to ask her the exact date but definitely 7 years+ after reading more on this post I have gone out to buy it lots of wafers and veggies to bulk him up. I didn't even know fishes ate fruits and veggies! I'm still looking for driftwood though. He/she is roughly between 6.5-6.8 inches atm.
Looks like a common sail fin pleco

Only photo I have currently.
My new BN pleco! Not sure on gender yet so they don't have a name currently. They're only about 1.25-1.75in so I'm patiently waiting for that 3in mark.

I got them about 2-4 weeks ago and I had the HARDEST time trying to feed them! They passed up pellets, wafers, and veg! Would only glass surf and wouldn't stay in an area too long. I FINALLY witnessed them eat an algae wafer a day ago! *phew* makes me feel better that I'm actually seeing them eat... now the real challenge... getting them to eat their veggies! We'll see what happens!

Update:

SUCCESS!

Here's my 12"+ that I "rescued" from my mothers' way too small tank, lol. In my eyes he's a monster, but we've had bigger.

Appears to be a female, males have spikes on their sides the length of the body. If you can get a picture from the top I can tell for sure

Yeah ours does too... but we also have a lemon bristlenose he is way more friendly 
In the picture your lemon BN looks like a female. How big is she because I don't see any bristles. Alison

He definitely has bristles just starting to come all around his top lip... he's still just a baby so they aren't visible yet. I can try get a close up of his nose.. it's the clown plec we were having trouble with but considering how smooth it appears to be that suggests it is possibly female

I think he's a male as he has ondontodes on his pectoral fins and the back half of his body. Will try to get a better pic one day! He's mostly nocturnal.

EDIT: Don't know what the white dots are in the pic. He doesn't have white dots on him.
