New Pleco!!

So, I went to the pet store today looking to add some fish in with my betta. And they had TONS of plecos. And I have been planning on getting one if I can find one small enough. So, I had the guy move the log... and no lie.. there were 3 times as many plecos in there than I had first thought, and all the sudden I see this TINY pleco swim up to the front of the tank, trying to escape the net, and I had the guy grab him/her. And I got it!
so.... now i need a name. its a little one, and his eyes seem like they arent exactly even.. which i think is adorable haha.
Ill attatch a picture..
any suggestions on names?? Something cute cause hes little...

He's really cute! Congrats!!

I hope you realize how big and messy he'll get, though . Hehe. He won't be able to stay in a 10-gallon for very long.

this guy can get to 2ft in length quickly...they grow to accommodate their tank, but thats not very true especially if you feed yours well
