Albino Chocolate Pleco

MetLife

Hey y'all!! I was at my lfs today and they had albino chocolate pleco, silly name for them lol but anyway when I asked the owner of the store how big they get, he said 4-5 inches. Moved on to what I went there for with plans to research the pleco when I got home. Ive read mixed comments on other sites about this pleco, most everyone saying a different size. I would like to get one as I think they are cooler looking than the BN. Anyone with experiance??

I have a 55 gallon planted tank with 5 platies, 5 Colombian tetra, an Angelfish and 3 yoyos.

I have not kept them, but in your searches, leave out albino, because sometimes it mixes other albino plecos with the albino BN pleco, because it's the most common.

So its probably a BN at my lfs

So its probably a BN at my last.
Probably is a chocolate pleco, they are more reliable than Google searches, I was saying search without albino, you might get better results.

It is probably NOT.

Chocolate Pleco reffers to this one
Pterygoplichthys scrophus • Loricariidae • Cat-eLog
So confusing lol I was hoping the owner of the place wasnt just telling me what i wanted to hear.
