They do not grow large like other types of plecostomus, and are suitable for tanks of 10 gal or more. Natural driftwood would be an excellent addition to their tank, as it will provide a more natural environment, and they can scrape algae from it. They enjoy strong water currents, and tanks with plenty of oxygen. Feed flakes, Hikari Algae Wafers and Tetra Colorbits. (Ancistrus cirrhosus.)
