I have a BN pleco in all my Tanganyikan tanks. They do a good job on new setups when there's a growth of brown algae - the trophs don't touch it.

IME they grow slowly in the Tang tanks - not as much meaty foods as the regular community tanks. I don't think I have any over 4" long.

I have some monster L144 that are close to a full 6".

I would not be too concerned with the size of the pleco. The trophs will likely ignore it completely.

Is it true that plecos clean the tank?

Here in Philippines, plecos are most often called 'janitor fish'. Lolz

Most plecos do not clean very well. In fact, many produce so much waste that they are a burden to the tank rather than helpful lol

Ime, bristlenose and rubber lip plecos are a couple that actually work as advertised.

I purchased two bristle nose pleco's an albino and a regular from local breeder both only 1.5'' long and tossed em in yesterday in the 135. I kid you not the entire back wall and both sides were cleaned like new and all rocks are clean over night??? I had a 4''-5'' BN few years ago that didn't do anything in the tank but hang out and poop….. These two are all over the glass and rocks with the Trophs all day little nips here and there and the BN's seem to just move on.
