What kind of aquarium fish is this?
A friend gave this fish to me I dont know if this is a common ancistrus or else?

It's probably a pleco, probably a leopard bristlnose but it could be a more expensive snowball pleco. If it grows whiskers, you will know it is a male bristlnose. But the female bristlnose usually do not have whiskers. If it is a leopard bristlenose, then it has a ton more spots than mine ever did. And at 5 years old, my Squeegy has lost all of her spots.
But it could also be a spotted Raphael catfish. which would have mouth whiskers that would not be visible in your pic.

That looks like a Bristlenose pleco to me. If it is, they're really good at keeping fish tanks clean of algae and stuff.
