Can anyone recommend a good medium sized pleco that won't get HUGE?

Know you like the green phantom. But check out L264 and L75. Ive heard they are very social. L28 nice too i think if you get a nice peice of dw for it to hide and at a decent size it could work. We may never know how marshall reacts unless you try. Capone would sometimes stalkn the phantom but never made contact or chased and he was one of the worst o's on the sight.



Some sites to look at also would be rapps and www.wetspottropicals.com stock list.

I never ordered from the two below but have read very good reviews on them.
Was considering going with tropical fish online as they have larger sizes and heard good things about them. I absolutly love L273 but heard they can be hiders for a while

Have to say one of my favorite looking pleco that I have ever owned was an L014 Scobinancistrus aureatus, Goldie or sunshine pleco.
They are on the larger side of medium in my opinion but not HUGE. lol

I should mention, it has to get big enough to not be swallowed by Marshall, but small enough it won't over power him either.

I bought the fish for $20 from a guy and it was 7" so awesome deal. I did not have it too long since this was the great outbreak I had experienced back when I had introduced two WC fish without first doing a quarantine. This actually happen after all the fish had passed and I thought I was completely done with the issue. Turned out what ever it was lived in the gravel and continued to infect the fish introduced. I had to pull out 135lbs of gravel out of the 210g and bake it until every thing was dead. Sadly the Sunshine happened during this time frame, and I lost it. It was a cool pleco!

Why do you want a pleco? Just to have? or because you want it to eat uneaten food from the bottom?
