    if you're looking for an algea eataer i'd def go with the BNP you talked about... The albino's are pretty. There's nore variations of the bnp too calico, super red, medusa.. I'd stay away from the medusa cuz they get pretty big 7" or so.

    I have a few diff plecos.. mine are woodeaters tho..

    thank you everyone for your feedback.

    I have another question and its about how long you can leave the vegetable in the tank for?

    I read somewhere that 4 hours is max time you can leave it in for.

    I leave veggies in my tank for around 12 to 18 hours. Never had a problem.

    4 hours sounds to short of time, IMO
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Most small plecos eat algae. The question is - will it eat algae after it starts to get older. Some plecos are carnivores, some are vegatarians, and some are omnivores. Most of what you'll see locally, at prices that won't shock you, are bristle nose variations. They do a good job on algae until they mature. The down side is they like to hide and eat after dark.

    Wood is pretty much a necessity in a pleco tank. Most species don't actually eat the wood. They rasp it to get the algae and micro organisms growing on it. You'll know which species really eat wood if you get one, as they essentially poop sawdust.

    Vegetables should be put in near dark or lights out, and removed the next morning. Some of us work, so the old vegetables come out and the new ones go in. It won't take you long to figure out what size or quantity to use, for adults. Youngsters eat more and more and more. Your tank may cloud when you start feeding vegetables.

    Supplement with sinking foods also given near or after lights out.
