A Good Pleco?

Hey everyone I have a 40 breeder im going to stock with more docile new world chiclids.

Anyway, Im looking for a good pleco for my tank that does not get too big. I heard the bristle nose, and rubber lip were good choices. I also saw a Rio-Negro pleco (L-135) on live aquaria and it looks cool but I have never heard of it before so if anyone has had one it would be great to know of your experience with it.

Just looking for suggestions

Yup those are good..depends on the size you want..and price. There is some "rare" ones out there. You have quite a bit of room in a 40G B..how many cichlids ar you thinking about adding?

I can just give you my stocking list:
1x Keyhole
1x Rainbow Cichlid
6x Apistogramma (two of each of three different species)
4-5x Cories
1x Pleco

Cories usually aren't recommended for cichild tanks I don't believe. I'm not sure about new worlds if it's okay with them, I just know for Africans. But are you looking for one to be big or something else? Cuz that's what really matters.

I second this. I have had my BN since I started a couple years ago. He's prolly around max size now and the cichlids could care less about him.

Yeah i heard the bristlenose plecos were great. Are there any plecos similar in size and behavior to the bn pleco but with different coloring or looks? Just trying to see my options.
