I'm considering getting a 10-gallon tank for my two (maybe more) clown loaches and my pleco. Right now I have two clowns and one pleco in separate smaller tanks. I was at Wal-Mart and I saw cheap 10-gallons(barebones, $9.48, no hood, no filter, no nothin'), and I really wanted to give all three of my fish more space, so I thought it would be good. And since I had more space, I wanted to introduce a third, maybe a fourth clown. I love my clowns, they're like little dogs! I love to see them swim together and "cuddle". So, back to what I was talking about...would the pleco harrass the clowns, or vice versa? Oh, the pleco is about 2 to 2.5 inches long and one clown is about 1.25 inches long and the smaller clown is barely 1 inch long. These measurements are as precise as I could get...the clowns kept darting away and the pleco kept burrowing. And since I can't really afford the 10-gallon kit (complete with filter, hood, etc. at about $50), I was wondering if I could simply transfer the filters and heaters that I have in the smaller tanks to the larger 10-gallon tank. AND seeing as I feed bloodworms to my clowns and algae wafers to the pleco, how would I feed them if I were to put them in the same tank? Are different feeding times suitable? Or would they just leave the other fish food alone? I think that's it for now, thanks in advance.
