if the plecos a common pleco, youre looking at a 100g. If its a smaller species, everything needs a 55g, but 75 is better

..my dojo had a growth spurt...about an inch a month for a couple of months...and then stopped...can't tell if he's still growing...

Smaller varieties of plecos usually stay around the 6-8" mark.

We made the mistake early on of buying that "cute little pleco". 4 months later he was over 8" long and ripping up and eating our plants
