I'm going to get two new fish in about 10 days and I really really love the look of pleco's. However I have a 29 gallon tank and if he grows to 12-18 inches , well that's just to big for my tank.

I know there is the bristlenose, and while they are a nice fish they don't " Do it" for me. Is there any other pleco's that fall in to the dwarf category maybe peak out at about 5-6 inches pressing maybe 8 inches at the most. My wife has fallen in love with the gold spotted ones, and I know I can go with Cory's but again really like the look of the pleco's

Thanks in advance guys !!!

AHHHHH I had no idea there were like 40 billion different catfish. I'll get back to you guys in a month or two about what I'm thinking about.

There's more small sized plecos than you can shake a stick at.

Do be careful though, as some of them are not algae eaters. I have 6 L15s that I'm growing for breeding. They are very beautiful, but...they aren't algae eaters. It depends on what youa re looking for, honestly. I'm glad you found planetcatfish, as they have some of the best information on the net for that.
