Garra ceylonesis??? #1
At least that's what I think he (she?) is, the LFS just told us 'Stonesucker'! Any other theories???

Nah, it's not a Garra ceylonesis, they are a type of cyprinid (carp family) and this little baby is some kind of plec. Can you get a pic of the other side of him?

Re: Garra ceylonesis??? #3
it looks to me like a 'pitbull plec', unsure of correct name, will investigate!

Ah! Fantastic! I thought he didn't look like any of the GC I'd seen before and I've never owned a plec before. I am not home right now, but I may just google and see if I can spot his lovely breed.

This is what I beleive to be a bulldog or rubberlipped pleco (I have one that looks like that). Does it have exremely large lips? If not it might just be a common pleco.
