This is Parancistrus aurantiacus.
No idea if this is a yellow, regular, black or hipster chubby.

Hi Daniel thanks for your message!
Would it be considered the old name l056y or Parancistrus Aurantiacus.
Meaning the pleco that can eventually turn all yellow?

Hi,

only P. aurantiacus, no L-Number: https://www.ig-bssw.org/again-and-again-l-56/?lang=en

It can change to a yellow colour, yes.
