I'm wondering if there is a type of pleco that remains as small as possible and produces as little waste as possible. My ten gallon could really use a pleco, but I don't want to overdo the tank.

I love plecos, but also wanted something that would stay small. And that's when I found the bristlenose plecos. Adult size is 5-6 inches. Great algae eaters.

I have a book that says butterfly plecos are also good algae eaters, and stay small -- about 4 inches. But it is recommended to have only one in a tank.
