If you're looking for something sociable, get a sailfin! They're a little pricey and get very big but mine's definitely my prized possession. Very friendly!

I think they're just a staple of the hobby, really. If someone comes to see your tank they'll probably go "do you have one of those sucker fish?" and if you do, then their eyes are immediately drawn to the nasty stringers they leave all over your tank. Gotta love em.
I must be in the minority that think they're butt-ugly and freaky looking :crazy:
Personally preference, really. I think cichlids are the ugliest fish in the hobby. Horrible little faces. Evil things.

Bristlenoses are the exception. I think they're vile honestly. Only plecos I don't like.
Problem is though, bristlenoses are the only ones (that I know of) suitable for smaller tanks (like 20 longs). I bought a bristlenose for my 55 gallon in the hopes I got a female! While I appreciate how cool the spikes are, I PERSONALLY don’t find them attractive

Aah I almost got a bristlenose off a friend, but I didn't want to risk getting a male!

I had a sailfin pleco it does early this year he was 13 inches and gorgeous but I think the only reason I saw him so much was because of how big he was

Wishing you luck!

Awww, how old was he? Hope mine lives long enough to get to that size.
I think my favorite kind of pleco are the Starlight BN plecos
Yes!! L183, right? Zebras, snowballs and starlight BNPs are my favourites. Commons and sailfins are up there, too.
