플레코스토무스, 플레코, 비파 (Hypostomus plecostomus)

플레코스토무스(Plecostomus)는 플레코, 비파 등으로 불리는 물고기로, 몸은 단단한 판들로 덮여 있고, 입은 다른 물체에 붙을 수 있게 되어 있으며, 눈을 뒤집어서 보호할 수 있다. 엄청난 크기로 자랄 수 있으며,1m에 가까운 대형 갑옷메기부터 안시스트루스 등의 소형 종류까지 있다. 수조안에서 자란 녹조류나 다른 물고기들이 떨어트린 먹이 등을 먹으므로 열대어를 기를 때 어항에 함께 기르는 일이 많으며,관상어 애호가들은 일명 청소고기라고 부른다.. 이와 비슷한 메기열대어로는 코리도라스(Corydoras)등이 있다.

Hypostomus plecostomus, the suckermouth catfish or common pleco, ('hypo' = under, 'stoma' = mouth, 'pleco'= pleated) is a tropical fish belonging to the armored catfish family (Loricariidae), named for the armor-like longitudinal rows of scutes that cover the upper parts of the head and body (the lower surface of head and abdomen is naked). Although the name Hypostomus plecostomus is often used to refer to common plecostomus sold in aquarium shops, most are actually members of other genera. The native range of Hypostomus plecostomus is tropical northeastern South America; it naturally occurs in northeastern Brazil, the Guianas, and Trinidad and Tobago.[9] Confusingly, the name Hypostomus plecostomus (or Plecostomus plecostomus) has sometimes been incorrectly used for several more-or-less similar loricariid catfishes, both in the popular and scientific literature.
