    I have a hi fin pleco in it right now. ( I Know it will grow out no need to tell me that).

    I was thinking of giving my pleco to the local fish store and getting an albino bristel nose pleco instead.

    Not if you rehome the hi fin first. Mine is a territorial bugger, I have kept other plecs with him in the past and somehow they were outlived by him.Not to mention the big bioload of one big plec much less a big one and a little one.I meant dont fret the mistake have buying /having a hifin.

    I would advise adding a piece of driftwood to the tank, my albino bristlenose likes to nibble at it.
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

    my pleco is still really small so maybe they wont have a problem taking it.

    If your hifin is under 6 inches you should be ok with another plec like a bn. Thing about plecos is there crap like a dog ways. They can foul a tank very quick.
