+one. Waste created by the plecos alone often make keeping water quality up to snuff more difficult.
They produce five times the amount of waste that all of your guppy fry can produce in a day.I would be searching for 55 gal tank rather than searching for more fish for your 38 gal which is prolly closer to 30 gal if you consider amount of water displaced By substrate.
I have a 80 gal that is more likely 75 gal of actual water due to three to five inches of substrate.
