Do you mean Parancistrus aurantiacus or Chaetostoma sp. aff. milesi?

All of that information on that profile looks pretty good to me. They're mostly herbivores but appreciate some protein in their diets from time to time. I would also say that, as with most plecos, driftwood is pretty much essential as they like to gnaw on it. I also don't think they're quite as shy as that profile makes them out to be. They're not as outgoing as bristlenoses, for instance, but aren't anywhere near as reclusive as clown plecos. Net little guys. The males might get territorial with one another in tight spaces but otherwise they should be well-behaved community residents.
