Butterfly Pleco hides under rock - only comes out at night. I must admit, I am unfamiliar with this type. It does seem to be able to change color a bit. What should I be feeding it? I've been using sinking algae wafers. Any info would be most appreciated and helpful. How big will it grow?

Thank you for the links! :-)
I tried using Skynet, I mean Bing, and wasn't having much success.

AC has a collection of decent species information but the number is fairly limited. I find planetcatfish really useful for catfish (there's a surprise! ;) and http://www.seriouslyfish.com/ for most other species.
