    none discovered so far. The titanic, histrix's and adonis is going to be as big as you get. Wurm- Gibbys get to 18"+

    The Psuedacanthicus hystrix, the Acanthicus adonis, Acanthicus histrix, and the LDA65 titanic pleco are the biggest of the big. The LDA65 is the largest though. None of these will survive an outdoor pond in Tennessee during the winter.
