I have a 125 gal tank and 2 plecos 10" long, How many can I safely have in my tank? I would like to put in one more. Also can somebody tell me how to tell which plecos I have?

I'd just look at some photos to see which plecos you've got. A common pleco can get pretty big. The general rule is one gallon of water to each inch of fully-grown fish. What other fish do you have in the tank?

How many plecos you can have depends on the decoration and the species. Some are aggressive others are peaceful.

The site rev recommend is a good resource on the topic.
