    Looks like a common pleco. I don't know anything more specific than that, sorry. Those get huge, what size tank do you have?

    Alright, cool. Just so you know, they can get 2ft long, just make sure there's room for him to turn around in the tank as he grows. Have fun with the new guy!

    That appears to be a Gold Spotted Sailfin, Pterygoplichthys joselimaianus. They max out around a foot, though they don't always get that big.
