I think these two are Pitbull Plecos, can anyone confirm that they are?

I would say Parotocinclus jumbo very common in the shops these days. Very good algae eaters IME. and suitable for smaller tanks (6cm)

Ditto. I had a couple of these guys in my planted tank. Good algae eaters but very skittish.
