I have a common albino sailfin Pleco which is beautiful and a fully grown L129 Pleco in with my Oscars it looks pretty good... L numbers are cool looking but can be a bit expensive...

You talking about a Zebra pleco, if so, then those look cool. I not a huge pleco fan, I have a few small albino bristle nose in my planted tank to control algae, but that's it.

yeah not much of a plec fan either but might have to get one to help me out with my new tank... Some places might be really hard to clean algae off and might have to deal with the poo of a bristle nose over not being able to get to algae I know they will be able to ....

how do you like your bristle nose?


but this is only a thought really don't like pleco poo

I had a common pleco, a friend gave me, for all of 3 days. I got so disgusted by the all the damn poo, not to mention it dug the hell out of my sand that I gave it back to him lol.

My bristle noses are great. They stay small, do a good job with the algae and don't bother anything else in the tank, so if I had to actually recommend any pleco, they would be it, albino or otherwise, bristle nose all the way.

If you've got a mom and pop shop near by you can see if they'd order you one. If not you could always order one yourself, they're not terribly expensive.
