That’s a lot bigger than I thought. Is my tank too small? 29 gallonstoran said:Hi, I don't know about the frog, never heard that yet I suppose if the pleco unintentionally landed on him and didn't move for awhile it could be possible. I think the struggle from the frog may cause the pleco to move. They aren't aggressive. Five inches is the correct length not 1.5 inches.

He is about the normal size for an albino bristle nose when full grown. He is about 5 years old now. He is a gentle creature and never bothers any of his tank mates. Hopefully yours will be too and your frog will be safe. I have to think one hurting a frog would be a total accident and not something that would happen very often.
Personally I wouldn't have a problem if I had to put Elbert in a 29 gallon. I would have the tank over filtered. His size wouldn't be a problem but his bio-load might be. Plecos are heavy waste producers so the smaller the tank the more filtration it needs.Tpane27 said:Is my tank too small? It’s 29 gallons
I have a fluval c3 filter and a double sponge filter. HOb filter has biomax and matrix plus the sponge media, and sponge filter has matrix In it. 7 glofish (white skirt tetras) 5 Corydoras and the frog. Ammonia is 0, nitrates are anywhere from 10-30, nitrite is 0Fisch said:It depends on the fish you plan to stock beside the BN. Beside the frogs, what are your plans?
It looks like the filter combination should be able to handle the load. Just need to keep an eye on the parameters. I agree with mattgirl, plecos poop a lot.Tpane27 said:
