new clown pleco
Today while browsing at my LFS I bought a clown pleco on somewhat of an impulse. The LFS had taken him in to re-home. He is about 2 inches long, perhaps a bit less.
I put him in my 10 gallon which I am considering upgrading to a 20 gallon long in the future.
Currently I have 2 platys, one Endler and 8 mosquito Rasbora in the 10 gallon and now the clown pleco. I'm afraid I am probably overstocked now.
I blanched some spinach for him and broke up an algae wafer and dropped it in too. There is definitely some algae on the glass for him to munch too. There are 3 small pieces of driftwood in the tank, one of which he has claimed as his territory and is hiding under.
I have a bristlenose pleco in a different tank, so I have some experience, but any advice would be appreciated.
