When I bought my pleco about a year ago I was VERY naive and uneducated in this subject... The person at the store told me to purchase a pleco to clean the algae from my 10 gallon tank, he said that it would only grow to be at most 2 inches long... fast forward to now, one year later, and the pleco is about 8 inches long, and I believe has been the reason for the death of many of my guppies. What the heck should I do with this pleco? Should I just order a larger tank and start fresh? I do love and care for him, but he has definitely caused issues in my tank, and I know that he isn't in a large enough habitat for his size, so I feel awful.
