They only get about 6 inches and are very peaceful. My LFS has them under $15 all the time. But you want to be careful with there barbs. I always catch them with a cup not the net. I had a tragedy with one. His barbs got stuck in the net and he never got out...

You don't have to go with the standard bristlenose there's tons of great Ancistrus species variants. Green dragons, Blue eyes, Medusas, Blue Seam, peppermint just to name a few!

Check out a Gold Nugget. I haven't had one, but definitely on my list. They don't get as big as commons, but I've heard they are a bit shy.
