This catfish will attain 6 inches, and should not be kept with smaller fish as it will likely attempt to eat them.

i have one of these fish and mine is prolly my favorite fish in my tank. mine stays hidden most of time, but when i feed my fish he comes alive and doesnt stop eating. i really like stripes on them... pretty much a cool fish .

That's even worse for a small tank, as this species attains 14 inches. Most (but not all) loricarids (pleco are in this family) are fairly large, and very messy waste-wise. There are some smaller species in Hypancistrus, one in our profiles is the Zebra Plecostomus, and the BristleNose Pleco in Ancistrus is smallish at 4 inches. Click the names for their profile. The Whiptail Catfish is in the same family and suitable for smaller tanks, and there is the reddish form Red Lizard Whiptail.
