How big do L081 Gold Nugget plecos get?

L081 Baryancistrus golden nugget plecos can grow to a maximum length of 30cm, or 12" inches. They will typically reach and average size of 15cm in captive aquaria, or around 6" inches.

Golden Nugget pleco's can be housed quite happily with most community fish, and semi-aggressive but non-territorial fish mid to top-level swimming species. However, care must be taken if housing with other bottom-feeders, especially other pleco's, because they will be aggressive over territory (breeding caves).
