Plecs

I have been on the hunt for an L102 Snowball plec. I have been told that this plec is fine in a planted aquarium (unlike most others) and has a maximum size of 6".

My LFS ordered it in, but got the wrong one in! They got a pepermint L30 instead. I have had a look at this and it also has a max size of 6". Does anybody know if its suitable for a planted tank? Is it shy? Any known differences between this one and the snowball?

Gold Nuggets can get up to 14", but are more likely to stay in the 8-10" range. 6" is a very conservative estimate.
