Nice spotting but I don't why you would think Peckoltia. Think the fish is in a light phase, is this fish more silverish, or brownish. Is this just a common mass market Pleco?

More like L231, which is pretty much a common type of Pleco, Hypostomus sp. Likely to get over a foot long.

It also looks like a L75 and L12.

Difficult... I think it is already full grown now at 7 inches.

How did you find this fish? If 7" long, the fish you are thinking of rarely get that long in captivity, except after many years. Peckoltia seems very unlikely.

Fish stills seems uncomfortable to me, what color does the Pleco show when settled in a tank with substrate and rocks?
