Can't see it in the bag to be 100% certain but thinking Chinese Algae Eater.
Tend to become aggressive when grown. Gave my angels fits when full grown.

It looks to be a Chinese algae eater, unfortunately they get aggressive as they age. I'm pretty sure they can get up to 6 inches long if not more.
