It looks more like a panaque to me but I'm not sure if it's a clown or one of the many other similar looking panaques. I was going to say I thought it definitely wasn't a hypancistrus (zebras are hypancistrus zebra) but I did a quick search on planetcatfish and found this one and it does look similar: http://www.planetcatfish.com/catelog/image.php?species=hypancistrus+sp(l316)&image_id=7234

Either way, it'll be a great looking pleco once it settles in! I would feed a variety of foods until you can figure out what it is and what it likes.

thank you.

This is him all settled in haha. He's been in the tank nearly as long as it's been set up... probably 4-6 months. He's very shy and the only way i got this picture was b/c i turned the lights on to check something in the tank, so i'm thinking his coloration is due to that.

I have some Rubber Lipped Plecos that have that slightly marbled look, especially as soon as the lights are turned on. But this is just a guess.
