What type do you want and how big are they going to be when you get them?

A 20 gallon long would probably be best, since plecos don't really care more about height, but just surface area.

BN's are easy to breed.

Probably about 10 would be good, but no more than 15!

You'll want an external filter, or at least 2 internal ones if you want to keep just plecs in the tank.

But is it not a bit heartless to just get them knowing they'll outgrow the tank "then just sell them"? They're pets just like a cat or dog.
