The nocturnal Plecostomus is a great candidate for the community aquarium. Usually greenish yellow in color, its patterned fins camouflage it well in a planted tank.
A larger aquarium of at least 200 litre is recommended to house the common Plecostomus. It will get rather large in the aquarium, so provide plenty of room for it to move. Plants, rocks, and driftwood help mirror its natural environment and help give it a sense of security.

In the wild this fish is an egg layer, but breeding in an aquarium setting has not been successful.

A useful herbivore in an aquarium with algae, the Trinidad Pleco will keep algae under control under normal tank conditions. If no algae are present, supplement with algae wafers and other herbivore preparations.
