The Common Plec is a great fish to use for keeping your tank glass clean, they will spend all their waking hours shuffling along your tank glass eating the algae off it.

They do get large so please only get them for a large tank, also do NOT put them with other adult plec as I've found out they have a tendancy to get territorial once they get older.

However they are great fish to have with a large community of other species, I highly reccomend them.
