The steep nose makes me think Hypancistrus furunculus, but IDK. The colors don't look right for that species

Good luck,
Eric

The colours are with range if we accept that it's a young fish and moreover, it's stressed/reacting to being over blue gravel. Good ID for me!

Hypancistrus furunculus for sure, the size of the eyes in relation to the head length gives it away.
