Hey Bryon, so I did some more reading and was thinking about a replacement for the clown pleco. How about a pair of bristlenose plecos? I would like to get a small flowerpot to put in the aquarium for a spot for them. I already have a piece of bog wood for them. Do you know where I could get one? I don't want to put the wrong kind in there and poison the water.

The traditional clay flowerpots are (or should be) safe. If it is new, wash it thoroughly.

BN pleco I would hold off on until the tank has been running. These fish do best when algae (their natural food) is available when first introduced, and this is not normal in a new tank. Also, one might be best unless you can be sure of male/female; males can get aggressive and need space.
