Hello, I recently bought a 45 gallon Tank with fish equipment and everything. I got 2 Frontosas, 1 convict and a common pleco. I know the stocking is not the greatest but he's had it like this for about 7 years. I wonder by now they should be fully grown. Are they going to be fine in the 45 gallon?

Pictures attached

1st - currently, sand and rocks
2nd - cleaned with old decor and gravel
3rd - previous owner

Yup! They will probably be okay for a little while longer but they should go in a 100 gallon. Although, since you have three they need probably a 200 gallon or maybe even a 250. I would upgrade them to a pond. Warm water ponds that are thousands of gallons are a massive amount of space, probably what they need,

Appreciate your help! The guy I bought them from actually had another convict in there before. So 5 fish in total. Not the best stocking. I'll try to get them to a better home then. Any ideas what I could have instead with the pleco and convict? My convict can get really territorial, I'm not sure which fish could handle him. I believe he's a male.
