1 Rubbernose
3 Bristlenose catfish
and 1 otocat (I know they aren't plecos, but they look like tiny ones)

I've never had a pleco for more than a week, end up trading/giving them away. Usually they came with large aquariums I bought on craigslist or on other forums. For me I like easy to maintain tanks, and plecos are poop machines!

Goes to 11!

ZERO, although I'm desperatly trying to find a medium to large one to clean out some algae in my 75G. The smaller ones (2-3 inches) that I got at the LFS just get picked on by the bigger fish too much.

just one bn pleco in my community tank. I would love to stock one or two in each of my cichlid tanks, but so far they just get killed :(

None, but only because I'm having trouble finding a long fin albino BN. Once I can find one, then I'll have 1.

*I'm rehoming the gourami and cory cats in the VERY near future, so the pleco will go in to the 20 gallon once they're out of there. :ssmile:

Yeah, I've got a lot of L144s growing out, hoping to get several breeding pairs out of the mix. Plus some green dragons, in addition to regulars. Also have an L208. Hope to add a green phantom and vampire to the mix in my big tank.

None, unfortunately...

People keep telling me to get one, and I have to keep explaining that my tanks are far too small, as well as not being pleco-friendly

Quite a few actually:
6 L-333's, hopefully start breeding soon, been growing them out for 2 years.
14 L-134's, 6 young adults last year and 8 juvies recently added to the group.
1 L-204, had 4 for several years, recently lost the other 3 during an outbreak of Ich. I think the salt did them in, not sure why 1 survived though.
6 L-340's, another potential breeding project with any luck.
7 LDA-08, dwarf bristlenose juvies growing out.
Couple hundred super red BN and several hundred regular brown, calico, and albino as well.
