I put the pleco in the 30 gallon as its by the window and I get allot of algae. So there is just two Firemouths in the tank. its a common pleco I will be getting a 70 gallon soon for him he is still young and about 6 inches long. I just wanted to add more color to my Cichlid tank. I also tought about tiger barbs or tetras for the firemouths. They will be going into the 70 gallon when I get it with in two months. I don't care to breed this tank I just want to add different fish to it. my two firemouths are quite shy but they will come up to the glass and say hi to me. the don't chase each other around or nip each other. They are really sweet hearts of fish I had my female sword in with them and they did not bug her. heres a picture of my babies there about 4 inches long.Jaysee said:I don't think a 29 is enough room. What kind of pleco do you have?
