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”.
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.
