Hard to pin point this down to a particular species but as Vedran states it looks like a Hypostomus species. I don't think it even has an L-number. The clear caudal fin is very distinctive.

"Plec 1 doesn't look anything like a common plec, he is small, spots to his face only where as on the pics i have seen the sp 7's have spots all over, my plec also has tan coloured patches all over his body too."

"Plec 2 doesn't actually have red fins, though its misleading as on the photo he does Confused he is very dark, nearly black infact with symetrical orange patches over his body."

and thats what she says in reply....any more ideas lol? i got lost a longggg time ago

Hi!

I agree on the Hypostomus id... something about the body shape even reminds me some members of the Hypostomus cochliodon species group...
How the teeth look like???
