In my younger days, I was a tropical fish aficionado. It was a great hobby. This is one of the fish I used to have in every tank, but NEVER this large. Mine might have grown to 8" tops in a large tank. This sucker fish is a couple of feet long. Plecostomus, aka Pleco, is not native to Florida, but it does just fine here. It comes from South America was brought here in the 1950's. When in open waters like those found at Pop Ash Creek, they can grow quite large. They eat algae with a vengeance.
