I have a common pleco in there but he is not even two inches long and he generally stays away from the gold fish. I did see him in the ceramic log that I have in there but I didn't think it had any sharp edges on it. He's still alive as of now, I have a feeling that if he is going to pass on he will do it within the next 12-18 hours. He ate a little while ago. I ended up taking down the tank divider because all the big fish figured a way to get to the other side of it. They seem to be leaving him alone. I guess I'll see how it goes.
