yeah, rubber lipped pleco's get to be about 10", and a huge bristle nose will be about 5/6" and that's really big. Apparently at the petco I go to they had a big 9" male bristle nose, not sure if I can believe it without seeing it, pretty insane XD if he was one he was a random mutant....
yeah, bamboo shrimp would never work with my cichlids for obvious reasons, but whenever I feed them and they make a huge mess while chewing up there food I always think to myself "Man a bamboo shrimp would love that".... but it would not like being tormented.
Petclub has Clown pleco's, but they're also too small.... they also had a sad tank of unhealthy common plecos who looked miserable and bored.
