Pleco keeper list?

This is a discussion on Pleco keeper list? within the Catfishes forums, part of the Freshwater Species category; I wonder if it would be productive to have a list of keepers for different plecos similar to what Planetcatfish ...

    DefaultPleco keeper list?

    I wonder if it would be productive to have a list of keepers for different plecos similar to what Planetcatfish has. It would allow us to find common keepers and exchange information about different species?

    I'll list what I have

    Pseudacanthicus Sp.
    - L320 (I think) - group of 6 of these
    - L114 (8 of them growing to adulthood to spawn)
    - L97 (only 1 big one)
    - L273 (2 medium sized ones, not sure if I am going to grow out or sell)
    - LDA105 (ranging in size from 1.5" to 8")

    Hypancistrus Sp.
    - LDA-05 (NOT L136, they are different fish, less spots, but still small spots and grow much larger), I have been growing 8-9 of these for a year now. They grow really slow then all of a sudden spurt up
    - L333 (Porto Do Moz variant) These are the yellow/black ones, 4 of them.
    - L401 (only 3 small ones of these I am growing out)
    - L411 (again small fish still that I am growing out)

    Others
    - L14 (a pair of 12" fish, trying to spawn them)
    - Panaque cochliodon (15" BEP)
    - L26 (single fish 7-8")
    - Super Red Ancistrus (10 growing out to spawn, German Strain)
    - L37 (a bunch)

    Some of these small Hypancistrus are kept with large pseuda's with no problems at all. They both eat the same foods, are found in similar waters (just different depths), etc.

    If anyone has any questions about any of these species or others I would be happy to help the best I can.

    As this Pleco keeper list growing healthily, I think it’s time to make it a Stickie!

    Cool. Thanks, Ed.

    Sick lid, do you have any pics of your L205? I've never seen one except on Planetcatfish Cat-e-Log.
