literary hundreds of plecos are natural to the Amazon basin
just in the family Loricariidae you have
Pterygoplichthys disjunctivus
Acanthicus hystrix
Squaliforma scopularia
Pterygoplichthys pardalis
to name but a few
for the full list of known Amazon fish see here

by more "natural," I mean what pleco is more common to the Amazon. I'm not familiar with them, and I was just wondering if there's a certain one that would be more natural-looking with my discus.
