I have a 10" common in my tank and love him. Without him, the inside of my tank glass and all decorations become covered with brown algae in short order. Bam Bam does a great job keeping the tank scrubbed clean. Yes, he poops a lot. Probably more than all the other fish in the tank combined. I also have to feed him pleco pellets well after dark, or Fred eats them and Bam Bam would starve.

That's a beautiful Pleco.

Yea, try to get the biggest one you can. In my experience, Oscars can and will kill fish that they have no hope of swallowing.

Yes it is. Be that as it may, Bam Bam is my Pleco, Fred is my Oscar (and Wilma is a Convict). I was going for a Flintstones theme...... :blush:
