I've seen snails used in the same way, but they seemed inevitably to have population explosions :)

They are a freshwater tropical fish so I doubt it I love their proper name Plecostomus

Beautiful pleco! My pleco Longfellow died of old age not too long ago. He was almost 20 inches and would eat anything he could fit in his mouth. Loved krill and live earthworms. He was rather fond of salmon eggs, too. (An odd treat from whenever Rick went fishing).

The pleco I had before him, Amadeus was long lived and over 20 inches. I learned something from him - if they get out of the aquarium, they can 'run' like hell. They use their rigid fins as legs and have a remarkable speed. They can survive quite a while out of water. They also do great in koi/goldfish ponds.

the question is not whether they can survive in a pond but on the kitchen floor!

Jule, when Amadeus got loose (we had moved, and it was during transfer to the aquarium), he took off toward the kitchen and went straight under the stove. Took a while to get him out, about an hour. He was fine.
