    What Species of loricarid are you Talking about? Some are entirely carnivorous, many touch plants only when starved of algae. Others however, will eat soft leaved plant species.

    Hi, All I know is it is a dwarf plecostomus, the normal common kind, not a bristlenose. One of the forums of a plant website mentioned that plecos and lilies do not mix. I was interested in adding color to my medium light tank & noticed the red dwarf lilies but didn't want to get a "known mistake" if I could help it! thx

    The descriptions "dwarf" and "common" contradict. Besides the "exotic" pleco species found in the trade, the 2 common bread and butter species sold are the bristlenose and the common pleco. Actually, several species are sold under common pleco, but all grow very large. The bristlenose however, remains small and may grow whiskers on its snout. A picture or scientific name would help ID your pleco and establish what dietary preferences it has.
