Plecostomus for Freshwater Aquariums
Plecostomus, the name of which is often shortened to pleco, are not necessarily all herbivores and they are available in an extraordinary number of patterns. Zebra plecos live up to their name, and show very distinct stripes while gold nugget plecostomus show flakes and highlights of gold against a dark body. Plecostomus are often viewed as simply an algae eater than can be dropped into any aquarium but that is not true in many cases. Research the plecostomus you are considering buying before making the purchase.
