    Default Pleco Recommendations

    I have to admit that I have never owned a Pleco. I know, really? What is your recommended short-list for smaller Plecos that are suitable for a Discus tank, and how many Plecos per tank? Thanks.

    ive had luck with most l number plecos i have a group of l134 leopard frog plecos and a few l333 with my discus have 5 plecos total in my 125 gallon tank. for how many plecos depends on how many other fish you have in your tank but they really dont even pay attention to one another.

    Currently have a L200 Green Phantom and an L177 Gold Nugget (large spots) in with my discus and they are doing excellent. They don't do much algae eating though with the Discus being fed all kinds of high quality meaty foods. These guys gorge themselves on blood worms and brine shrimp completely ignoring all the nice veggies i throw in.

    Bristlenose are excellent for discus! Just make sure you keep them out of your canister filters
