    Default Plecostomus survival

    Hi Folks, I'm new to this site so I ask for your patience. We have recently moved to Florida and have a pond with a few small koi. The algae is out of control and we would like to add a plecostomus but we are wondering if it would survive the temperatures. I understand the ideal temperature range is 72 - 86. My question -- how far out of that range is dangerous? Has anyone had any experience with these fish in Florida? Thanks for your help.

    Someone posted a video of plecos in the news recently. Florida has a problem with people putting them in local lakes and river systems and they are thriving. So as long as you don't release it into the wild then yeah it probably will do ok.

    Welcome to the forum aswell
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .
