Re: Catfish type? #2
Not 100% certain but it looks like a juvenile bristlenose pleco. It will grow to about 5 inches long and if it's male will develop bristles on its face/nose as it matures; if it's female it may get a few small bristles on the mouth area, but none on the nose. Link below to more info and pictures of this species for confirmation:

That is definitely a bristlenosed pleco. I only know because I have one - bought because I was assured they only grow to about 6in max. Mine also poops for England!
