I am of the opinion that a fish that grows to over 12" will present the average fish keeper with a problem.
This is not to say they cant be housed and have a long and productive life (Not happy happy is not a relevant term to any thing apart from humans)
I have seen some nice big tanks and tropical ponds with big fish in them .

Part of the point of the article is to discourage people away from big plecs by showing that there are others out there that do a good if not better job of keeping algae down. Common plecs are too large for most aquariums and adult gibbys grow even bigger. Another reason to include common plecs was to show these guys need feeding just like any other plec, many people buy them and think the algae in the tank is sufficient food and sadly many starve to death.

Which algae eating Pleco?

Bristle nose is good. They are peaceful. But make sure plecos are big enough than other fishes in your tank. Otherwise they may try to eat plecos.
