I can not find the fish I have just bought on any lists. I was told at the pet store that it is a sucking loach and he will keep my tank clean and that he will reach 20cm. But what is it?

My dad used to have these giant otocinclus, they looked just like the normal otos but about 4 inches long. They are not related at all, just look similar and were the best algae eaters I have ever seen. This maybe what you have maybe, but I have never seen these fish again and there is very little info on them.
pics would really help!

Seeing from the name, I have a very bad feeling that it's a Chinese Algae Eater, which is not a true loach.
