Redfin Uruguay Pleco??

Does anyone have any experience with this type of pleco??? If so, how is the experience??? (What do they eat, how do they fair with other fish, are they a good cleaner fish, etc) I'm getting one in the mail on Wednesday and am just wondering.

They're pretty much the same as a bn, I had one. They clean glass like a pro.
But... what if I told you they're highly aggressive and need specific parameters? Only eat certain good and have a tendency to suck on the slime coat of other fish?? Always research a fish BeFoRE you buy it, especially by mail... you'll be ok though, they're pretty easy. Poop like it was the only reason creation happened. What size tank?
