    If this is your fish http://www.planetcatfish.com/catelog...?species_id=80 it will get nearly 11 inches and will need a big tank. I have read elsewhere on the internet that some common plecos are called chocolate plecos and they will get huge. If you don't have or can't purchase a large tank for your pleco the only advice I can give you is to return it.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Pretty much the whole of the Pterygoplichthys family gets big and needs tanks at least 5 ft long. Always puzzles me why these are so popular with shops.

    Anyway, OP, don't know what your tank is like but if this is indeed the species you bought then take it back.

    I guess that would be a corner tank. I hope you get it soon, 6 goldfish won't last long in a 30g.

    i know and its a corner tank but it is the shape like the super man symbol this guy made it hime self. i have not found a stand for it yet im thinking im going to have to make one. and i need the filters and decore. it will be awile before i get it all and set it up but right now my goldfish are small biggest one is 2-3 inches then the rest are .5-1 inches long. all my fish are small and i have 2 filters a 30 gallon and a 20 gallon filter so it will work until i get it all and set it up.

    I would guess it's shaped like this; TankStand.jpg Maybe if you get the dimensions from him you can find a stand.

    Neither will a single dojo loach or the rubber lip. Loneliness will get the first, bad water will kill the second.
