Moving my Albino bristle nose pleco

So I'll be getting a 10 gallon tank for a betta I'll be getting. I was wondering if I could move one of my Albino bristle nose pleco's from my 29 gallon tank to the 10 gallon tank I'll be getting? Or do I just need to get a new pleco which I dont mind doing?

Thanks ahead of time

i wouldn't put any pleco in 10 gallons, except maybe a zebra, which costs hundreds of dollars. i honestly can't think of a pleco that would be comfortable in a 10 gallon though.

Could I put 4 or 5 panda corys in it instead ?

they may be small enough, but i'd try dwarf or pygmy cories instead if you can.

no problem! just don't forget to wait until your tank is fully cycled for several months before adding the cories! they are sensitive little guys :)
