There are many different sizes of plecos depending on what species you are talking about. Most of the plecos you see in fish stores are simply called common plecos. Go to planet catfish and check out all the different species. The smaller species are called ancistrus I believe. You will refer to many suggesting the bristlenose plecos.
What is the smallest type of pleco? Are these compatable with the fish that I have?(I am just tired of my otto cats dieing and the survivor I have had this whole time having to be without a fellow algae eater).
But the thing is that one of my two ottos is in a hospital tank and I think it will die soon :'(. It has been in there since the day after I got him. I don't wanna get another one because they just keep dieing on me. They ca get very lonely and I was wondering if there are any good algae eaters that can make friends with it.
Well I don't really wanna add snails cus my tank is planted and I have three ghost shrimp. I guess I'll try with otto one more time and if it doesn't work then I'll try an algae eater I saw at petsmart (its pretty small and it looks friendly and is kept with guppies).
