I have two common pleco's which are getting two big for there tank,
could somebody recommend what size tank i should get.
I would like to get one that is big enough for when it is fully grown.
I was looking at a 350l, but i don't think this will be big enough now.
Also do you think i should put them in different tanks.
Any input would be grateful.

I wouldnt keep a common plec in anything less than a 150 gallon tank. Two should be fine in a tank that size. There is a fair chance that they will be come territorial if they are both males.

Sorry to sound a bit stupid :help:, is the US gallon or UK gallon, we work in litres so i would need to convert that.
They are ok together at the moment but i did read that they could fight when they get older, so might separate them.
Not sure what sex they are, i can't find any info that will explain it properly.
Thanks for your help.

Sorry, 150 us gallons is equal to 567 liters.
