I too think its a Starlight (L182). The presence of the bristlenose means it couldn't b a Peppermint by any chance, right?

How do u kno its female??? Its only about 8cm long.

I'll happily confirm that that Pleco is L213! Aka Starry Bristlenose.
I have two of them, look exactly the same, shape, colour, mouth, bristles, everything!
They grow about 10cm long, not a particularly bristley species, but males and females can easily be told apart when mature Smile

It's a pity "turbo" cant answer this but -
The first pic of the fish looks like it has a brown base colour with offish white spots over that, not solid black with bright white spots.
I'm going with Tadj's bet :Ancistrus "Rio Ucayali" or orange spot,
I'll try to get my hands on the Aqualog cat-alogue today and have a closer look.
Also ( a bit off topic) Ancistrus "Hoplogenys" is listed a L059 not L213.
cheers J
