L-187A Spotted Rubberlip Pleco
The Spotted Rubberlip is a close cousin of the Rubberlip pleco and may be cross bred, but in wild these plecos are generally found in separate schools. Spotted rubberlip plecos have the same body shape as the common rubberlip but feature a light spotted pattern and are often called albino rubberlips by the fishermen, though they are not true albinos.
These plecos are similar in behavior too, great scavengers, somewhat shy, and good tank mates.
