  1. Default Will a royal pleco outgrow

    0 Not allowed!
    I was wondering would a royal pleco outgrow a 75 stocked with 2 angelfish and a school of rummynose tetras.
    I really like this species but plan on getting a Feather fin synodontis instead if the species will ( a royal pleco) gets too big .

    It grows up to 16". It will take a few years to get to that size. You could keep it in the 75g long term as long as you keep the nitrates below 20ppm with regular water changes and testing of your water parameters.

    Get the featherfin. They are very cool and won't get too big for the tank.

    it will take a royal 20 years to outgrow a 75. problem is that they are HUGE waste machines and they would keep your water sub-par in a 75g.

    If you got a juvenile, like 2inches I'm sure you could keep him/her for at least 5 years before the large amount of waste would become a very noticeable inconvenience.

    Large filtration and very good tank maintenance will help
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    That's okay, I think I'll stick to types that don't pop a lot and don't grow quite as large. I don't think the house would let me get another tank once it outgrows it, anyway.
