They simillar to BN's then? That was what the salesman said in PatH, that i'd have to get 1 young, and i'd only have it 2 years before it got too big.

Plants

I went to my local petstore today I got a green canilina, and two other plants that I cannot figure out what they were and they did not know themselves. I would never go there for advice on fish but I new I wanted live plants and seeing they are from the same water source mine is I figured that it would be ok to get them. Well now that I got home checked for snails and snail eggs and I found alot of them. I am wondering if I made a mistake getting plants that I cannot know the needs of. I have looked in the plants species that are posted but cannot find them there. I do not have away to post pictures so any other suggested would be useful. I was hopeing that they would help if I made a mistake when I moved my tank and started a mini re-cylce with amonia. Now that I have read more on plants I might of made a mistake.

I would disagree, 10 gallon is enough room to swim for a BN. Most pleco breeders keep their pairs in a 20gal max and I have seen many use 15gal. I currently have 2 BN juvies in a 10 gallon until my 20 gal tank cycles, they have been there for almost 3 weeks along with some fancy guppies. I do 20% water changes every week to 10 days and my water parameters are perfect. I have good filtration as well, but I personally think BNs work great in 10 gal.

Yes i know it will be ok but it will prefer a bigger tank and it will limit him on other fish..
