Well, there are plenty of people who can provide the opposite view. ;-)
I once bought a small common pleco (the smallest I could find, about 4 cm).
I took it home and watched in horror that night as it darted out from under
the driftwood, grabbed a leaf of one of my plants (I believe it was a
Brazillia Pennywort), yanked it off the stem, took it back under the
driftwood and dined on it. Then it went out for another leaf. I
immediately netted the guy, isolated him and took him back to the store the
I have had a lot of success with Dwarf Plecos though (Peckoltia vittata).
