I have a clown pleco in my 20L, and I think he would be doable in a 10g. They only get to 3-4 inches, max. As far as the famous pleco poop goes, he produces less waste than my four otos, and also less than my four amano shrimp- now, their poop I have to clean constantly. Clown plecos pick out a hiding spot and camp there (in wood, they need wood to survive), so they don't need much exploring space. Problem is, though they're gorgeous fish, this reclusiveness means you won't get to see him very often.
