Remarks: Small Spot Red Eye Plecos (Lasiancistrus heteracanthus) are long, flat plecos with tiny tan spots and a red caudal fin. Members of Lasiancistrus are said to be some of the most intense algae grazers in the pleco community. They also require driftwood to graze on periodically, though they likely gather their nutrients from the bacteria growing on the driftwood rather than the driftwood itself.
