Hello, this is my first post .. have a 30 gallon tank currently with 2 catfish; 3 guoramies, 1 molly and most importantly my 2 12'' plecos. I'm in desperate search for information because one of my plecos floats upside and i'm afraid he may die. Have done some research but truly appreciate any information.

welcome to the forum.
your tank is way too small for two fully grown common(I assume common) plecos.
you would be looking at 90 plus gallons for those two.
as for your immediate problems, they can be caused by a variety of things. It could be something resulting from keeping too big fish in a too small tank, such as water quality issues or aggression. do you feed your plecos anything? algae and biofilm in a 30 gallon
are not able to support two large common plecos which could be causing some issues.

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
