Many types of Plecostomus are nocturnal, but Rubbernose Plecos are often seen during the day energetically scavenging the bottom for bits of food. Description from I searched for this on


Plecostomus, or Common Catfish. A tropical fish; I actually only have one of these in all of my tanks and that is only because I took it from my sister-in-law when she sold her tank. They are stunning, low maintenance fish but grow quite big...legend has it that if you call out the name Plecostomus yours will die, hence the shortened term "Pleco"...
