I will be getting it from Petsmart or Big Al's so, nothing too pricy or out of the way to get.
I personally like plecos and have several different species but purchasing them as "cleaner fish" is perhaps not wise if one consider's the amount of waste (poop) they create on daily basis. This result's in more waste to be removed with weekly water change rather than providing a cleaner substrate.
With that said , I would maybe select a species that does not get too large = less poop.
Bristlenose would be my first choice for they stay relatively small (5 inches), and are fairly easy to find .
