Hi,

it's a Hypancistrus, most likely from the Hypancistrus cf. debilitera complex or Hypancistrus sp. "L 270".

Greetings
Elko

Looks very similar to my L270..... not sure what size your plec is but they can look slightly different as they get bigger. Picture is of some of my L270's of different sizes in the picture to compare.
