I have only kept regular and sailfin species. What other plecos have you kept w/ your ps and which do you like the most? Which does the best clean up job? Which seems to be most compatible with your ps?

I have a common pleco, and I would just stick with whatever is cheapest for one at your LFS cause sometimes they are just snacks for your P's, and sometimes they work out. I wouldnt put a hole in your pocket over a pleco...

I have a sailfin and a common pleco, which I bought together with my reds, some 14 months ago.
Later I added a clown pleco, which is holding its own for about 5 months now, a tiny bristlenose pleco, and last month I added a gold nugget pleco. The clown and gold nugget were pretty expensive fish, but I decided to give it a try anyways, because my reds don't seem to give much about having other fish in their tank. But it took quite some time before I was willing to try this!

If you have plenty of money, you could give any species a try, no matter what price tag.
Otherwise, I'd try to keep a cheap common or sailfin pleco alive with your reds for more than 6 months: if that works out, try a more expensive one..

My 0,02... :smile:
