common pleco help please
right so i have a common pleco, and ive grown very attached to him,
and i was just wandering if it would be fine to keep him in a 3ft long tank?
well the actual size is: 36Lx12Dx18H

ive seen people keep common plecos in 3ft tanks before and they have seemed fine.....

i am aware of the size they grow by the way,,,

cheers guys

Unfortunately, the tank is still very insufficient for that pleco. Your last option is either upgrade to a 125g or a pond, or replace him with a smaller species of pleco particularly a bristlenose pleco.

Ya Id agree with Lupin, mine got too big for my 75g. Gonna need a big tank for that pleco.
