awww... thats so sad... But kinda happy at the same time! the pleco is in a better home now!

~Welcome to my family, Penny (a.k.a. old king cole)~
~My fish~
Prince of whales- red and blue veiltail
Penny/ Old King Cole- red halfmoon
They share a divided 10 gal. tank.
I got Prince from petsmart
and penny from the same store.

I, myself am actually curious as to what is a good tank cleaning buddy. Obviously I don't expect the new friend to clean the whole tank for me, just aid me and perhaps add some company for my Betta

My worries are the size of my tank and the hostility of my Betta. What are the best cleaners to keep with a Betta?

actually, prince is very,very mellow, but it's kinda funny, he flares at nothing everyonce of a while, and he flares at his food before he eats it!

I would say Shrimp, but they can become snacks haha There's also snails but they produce their own waste which you'd have to clean. @Byte

"large pleco" would be anything really, but usually a Common Pleco. They can grow to be 12-18".

My pleco poops like there's no tomorrow. I love plecos and snails, why must they be so nasty?

Awwee I'm so sorry :( I was heart broken when I lost one of my two rescues a few months ago. They are amazing fish.
