The problem with many plecos is just that, they get to big and mindlessly uproot your plants and basically bulldoze your aquascape. It is this reason that bristle-nose, and zebra plecos (ancistrus and hypancitrus sp) are commonly sought after for planted tanks. If you want a big pleco then anything in the Hypostomus sp. will most likely work for you.
