pleco help
hello every body i would like to start a 20 gallon pleco tank and when they out grow my tank i will just sell them but ,i would like to no what kind of plecos and how many could i put in like i said if they get too big i'll sell them.

What type do you want and how big are they going to be when you get them?

A 20 gallon long would probably be best, since plecos don't really care more about height, but just surface area.

BN's are easy to breed.

when i get them thell probly be 2-3 in" and when they get over 10" ill sell them or put them in my 55 gal (if theres room) but ,if i can get a hold of bns ,candy stripe, tiger and,buterfly plecos then i would put them in there. :D

Probably about 10 would be good, but no more than 15!

You'll want an external filter, or at least 2 internal ones if you want to keep just plecs in the tank.

But is it not a bit heartless to just get them knowing they'll outgrow the tank "then just sell them"? :shock: They're pets just like a cat or dog.
