Infamous in the hobby for its eventual large size and waste producing ability, the common pleco is a large, majestic algae eater who can be very impressive to witness.

Feeding primarily on algae when young, as they grow they require vegetable matter in their diet, whether through tablet or pellets, or fresh provided veg. As such they tend to perform less of a "role" in the tank, instead taking to gliding through aquaria and resting on select spots, with the occasional eye roll.

Their colouration is primarily brown with vague patterning, with a large underslung mouth. They can be territorial with their own species, but can largely be housed with tetras, barbs, even large cichlids (to an extent), owing to their armoured hide.
