Moved my little guy to my 29 (i know its already overstocked) reasons :
No wood in 10 gallon
No heater (this tank hides heater and forgot heater busted when i stored it away after removing the fish in it)
and the 29 has alot more hides.

You should have posted this subject before purchasing a fish that's too small to survive in that tank.
It's like going to the grocery store hungry. a no-no

ok let me re explain this.

Bought the clown pleco and was growning it out in a 10 gallon for a 55 gallon.

I moved the beta from a 5 gallon to the ten gallon then moved the clown pleco to a 29 gallon now the plec is in my 55 gallon.

sry i explained it a lil confusing but i was never intending on keeping it in a 5 gallon nor that long in the 10 gallon. i did research for this speacies.
