    I have a clown pleco, maybe 1.75" long, pretty sure he's a panaque maccus. Anyways, I hear people talk about how their commons double in size in a couple months, but I don't think my clown here has hardly grown in the time I've had him(almost 2 months). I assume since they're small they'll grow slower, but I'm just wondering how old they usually are before they reach full adult length.

    most plecs, except commons, will grow very slowly. A few months is nothing, give him a few years.

    thanks, that was kinda what I figured but I thought Id ask anyways since some fish hit full size inside a year(though those are usually fish with like a 2-3 year lifespan, not 20).

    I have bought 1 1/4" Ancistrus that breed after haveing them for 13months. They were then only 3" tops, and now has not stopped produceing fry every 6-7 wks. I would say one yr. if feed some good food, high protien and add some water current- keeps them exersizeing. No steroids though; thats cheating.

    You should check out a food product from kensfish.com on line. I am very impressed with one in particular; it is called Golden Pearls. It is a 60% Protien food that stays in suspention like live brine shrimp. My fish like it as well, I give my baby plecos a little at night and that keeps them hunting all night too. He has a lot of awesome fish foods available and i've tried a lot of them. I like to spoil my fish a bit but they grow faster too.
