    I will still try to get ottos because they stay small. Their mortality rate is higher due to the stress of their shippment but if you have them for a week without dying, they should be fine then.

    If you end up getting a pleco, get the bristlenose. You don't want a common pleco or it'll be a tank buster.

    what do you mean tank buster ? and how rare are bristle Noses? I cant seem to find them anywhere? there anret really any Family Run pet stores around me only big chains and they only have plain pleco's or Clown pleco's which look cool and are small but I just have terrible luck with Regular pleco's they refuse to eat in my tank and just end up dieing within 1-2 weeks
