    As some of you may know a member is having some pleco issues and i have offered to take it for the pond I am setting up. Now before I get to my questions... yes he will be move indoors in the winter... that is really starting to grate on my nerves with people only focusing on that... now

    It is believe he, named Big Al, is possibly stunted... is there anything i should be prepared for with a stunted pleco? I know their life span is shortened but other than that?

    Plecos (as well as goldfish, and other fast growing fish) safe extremely capable of recovering from stunted growth, even after years of being cramped up. It's pretty interesting :)

    There shouldn't be an issue.

    Oh okay I was under the impression they would stay small and thus damage could be caused... well I am glad to hear that he will be growing again!
