Excellent! Do you know what kind of pleco you have? If it's a common pleco, he could easily get over a foot long.

Comman plecos grow about an inch a month and once they are four inches as long as they are in the ten gallon there growth will be seriously stunted, so you can do the math and you have about 2.5 months to get a bigger tank ready for him.
