Following good advice on here - I rehomed my pleco today. I work at a school and one of our Science teachers has nice aquariums in her classroom and she was happy to take him. I can check in on him whenever I want which is pretty cool!thumbs2:

I bought him without doing my homework first and didn't know how big they can grow until after I got him home. He was in a 10 gallon tank. I am reading everything I can now and making sure I am doing things the right way from here on out.
By the way - the Pleco came from Walmart and the person who got him out for me didn't even work in that dept. First and last that I get from our Walmart -

yea i tell everyone to stay away from walmart they may be convenient but they should not carry fish. even if you buy aquarium products it encourages them to continue to stock fish that will not be taken care of.

thumbs2: Nice job!!
I have one bought without doing homework too! Darn it!
I ended up buying a 135 gallon and he will go in there in a couple months, once the tank can grow some goo for him!
