What species is the pleco? What about the tetras? A picture will be needed to identify your tetras.

We'll need photos of your pleco. If it's a common pleco, you need to get rid of it before it outgrows your tank. It has the potential to reach 12 inches and more which your tank can hardly accommodate. Replace it with an Ancistrus or a Panaque maccus if possible.

It is a common pleco. I will see about getting one of the others. Beyond that is my tank at its limit or do i need to add some other fish. Do i need to get rid of any others.

Ok my roster has dwindled. As i did not find this forum early enough to realize you need to cycle the tank.

I am down to the following

Black Mollie
Yellow lyretail mollie
Dalmation mollie
Guppy
Mickey Mouse Platy
Mixed Platy
Pleco

So what do you recommend adding to this once my tank is cycled.
