Hi there,

Really depends on the relative sizes of the fish... Kindly advice on what size of a Pleco are you planning to add and how big are your fronts.

If the difference is not beyond what is commonly advised / accepted , and if the Fronts are well fed, I dont think you'll have any problems...

Hope this helps...

Also wanted to request you to kindly advice on what is the regular / usual price of these plecos there, Are these commonly available in your place ?

Kindly advice...

Like Kush said,it depends on the size of the fronts you want to keep with it.

You could keep it with juvies but i think with a size that is about 4 inches it could be eaten by adults.

You can keep it at the same temperature as your fronts.

Just make sure it got some places/caves to hide.

Yes, Plecs love PVC Pipes and Caves - make sure you have them in the tank...

I'd not suggest keeping any pleco or other fish for that matter smaller than 5-6 inches with adult frontosa.
a frontosa will eat it or try to eat it and die choking.

really i'd not keep a pleco smaller than 8 inches with them.

L134 is a dwarf type, not a good choice for frontosa.
I made a list in the bottom feeder section that will work a bit better.
