But I have no live fish stores around who will do trades. I called one fish store and they said they would do a trade but they would only give me 10 for my big pleco, and petsmart said that should be a 25 to 30 pleco. If anyone is close to me and interested in purchasing them from me please let me know.
You have a 55gal, right? It does seem a bit overcrowded, but my 5 gal tank is "overcrowded", and the fish are doing fine. It might be different in a 55 Gallon where each fish probably has its own territory.
Getting rid of the big pleco might do some good. I had to get rid of 2 of my old plecos that were HUGE (11in. and 8in).
Hope you can find some places to get rid of the fish.
