The basic aquarium bushy nose pleco or bristle nose pleco, brown, either locally bred (usually) or farm raised. These are the ideal algae eating pleco. If you're still buying regular ol' "plecos," Batfish will have words for you. The BNP gets to a maximum size of about 4", perfect for most tanks, breeds easily, looks cool and ... best of all ... it ... eats ... brown ... algae. The type most of us have in the aquarium. Great algae eaters.

The Whiptail Catfish, a species of Loricaria, is an interesting fish with great camouflage.
