Could 2 common plecos survive in a 75 gal tank??

Most fish could 'survive'. Its a matter of being happy.

How wide is a 75g?

Those plecos get 2' so at least 30" wide.

Tolley nailed it. Survival is not the key. We could survive the rest of our lives in a closet but I'm pretty sure we wouldn't be particularly happy or healthy.

I wouldn't go with 2 in there, 1 yes.

Survive was a poor choice of words -- I was just asking a question --

What I should have said would it be ok to put 2 plecos in a 75 gallon tank -- and I now know that answer would be no.

thanks

Why put 2 common pleco's (that really need a much larger tank) into a 75 when you could easily fit a few BN's in there? Chances are good a pair would form and they'd spawn.
