Bristlenose Pleco get my vote anyday.
They stay relatively small (mine is ~5inches) and are just fun to watch. They get a bit grumpy as they age, and none of my other fish is allowed to nibble on his zucchini.

Good decision. I got mine through the classifieds from a hobby breeder, and Lips was my first fish in the tank. Yes, petsmart has a lot of common plecos...I learned to read the little tags at their tanks

If your looking for something that is rare than a l46 would be cool.

It wasnt even a petsmart lol but even the little tag said bristlenose pleco and it was so small and I thought that maybe they got their briskly noses when they grow older but nope lol it's a common pleco I found someone to take him tho and they have a 120 gallon tank so I'm super happy someone will take him!
