Def not. The eyes are too large and the colouring is not that of a common.

Not too sure what is is though. I must admit i have got slack on my Pleco IDs but all I can say is that if you bought this for the price of a common then you have had a massive win!!

For now, my bet is - one of the hypostomuses.
The better pic you post, the better your chances that someone'd know.
There are about 3K known species of catfish.
Also, you can browse yourself Wink
