if you want an amazing pleco, but it costs quite a bit more than a standard, get an L-183 starlight bristlenose. they would love it

Wow the starlight pleco is cool looking! I wonder if they can order them at my local pet store. Do they stay small? I have a 20 gallon long. Our pleco now is about 3 inches. I'm not sure how much longer he will be able to thrive in our tank

I could be wrong but I'm not familiar with any pleco that can live permanently in a 20 gallon tank

There are several that can however all but the rubber lip and bristlenose are kinda rare I believe. I have a whiteseam bristlenose that is gorgeous! In a 20 long I would look for any bristlnose, a rubber lip, a bulldog, or one of the 2 inch species that I cant remember the name of.

Some Pygmy cories would look nice. They're social and don't produce as much waste as a pleco
