How big do Trinidad Plecs get?

The Trinidad plec is attractively patterned over the entire body and fins, with a prominent dorsal fin. Trinidad plecos are often seen hiding in a dark corner, fins clamped, appearing a dusky brown, or feeding on the algae on aquarium glass.

Trinidad Plecos, hypostomus plecostomus, can easily grow to exceed 20 inches (50cm) over time. This must be taken into consideration when housing, an aquarium in excess of 100 litres is highly recommended to accommodate long-term growth of the Trinidad plec sucker fish.
