is a vivarium consisting of at least one transparent side in which water-dwelling plants or animals
are kept. Fishkeepers use aquaria to keep fish, invertebrates, amphibians, marine mammals,
turtles, and aquatic plants. The term combines the Latin root aqua, meaning water, with
the suffix -arium, meaning “a place for relating
to”.[1] An aquarist owns fish or maintains an aquarium,
typically constructed of glass or high-strength acrylic plastic. Cuboid aquaria are also known
as fish tanks or simply tanks, while bowl-shaped aquaria are also known as fish bowls. Size
can range from a small glass bowl to immense public aquaria. Specialized equipment maintains
appropriate water quality and other characteristics suitable for the aquarium’s residents. Hypostomus plecostomus (known colloquially
as a sucker fish) is the scientific name for a type of freshwater tropical Central and
South American fish belonging to the family Loricariidae. They are large algae eaters,
and to differentiate them from small algae eaters, they are often referred to using the common names plecostomus, often
abbreviated as plecos or plecs. Plecostomus is also a synonym of the genus Hypostomus
and the genus Loricariichthys. They are extremely
popular in aquariums for their ability to clean tanks by eating algae growth and dead
fish. These friendly-natured fish can typically be purchased when about 8 cm (3.1 in) and
often grow up to 60 cm (24 in). Such larger specimens are impractical for any but the
largest aquariums.
