I want a pleco that will grow to be prety big (over 7") and I want to get two of them for my 90g. There is already a bristlenose pleco and he is awesome but he hides all day and only comes at night. I want some I can see sucking on the wall from time to time. Thanks for your help

In my experiance most plecos are fairly non-aggressive, but can be slightly terratorial, but in a 90g I cant see that being a big problem.

I suggest you go for the pleco that you see that is a reasonable price, and that you like.

do you really want so many plecos in your system?...they just produce so much waste and when they get bigger they just sit there and take space..

mabye I will just get one that grows large then. Then I will have a b-nose which will stay small and a large pleco. That sounds good.

Very true!!
And if you are going to house him in with your Ps, you might as well get a common type just so that you wont feel bad about spending so much on a Pleco that would just get killed.

No no no, the 90g is a community tank.

I already have a bristlenose pleco. They do kick ass but I want one that grows larger

Adonis pleco's are nice, and will grow very big (at least 15-20"), but are extremely expensive...
Other cool ones are clowns, gold nuggets, zebra's and mango pleco's, but they don't get that big.
