I agree, I wouldn't keep a pleco in a 10 gallon. The one I have in 30 (or so) gallons with the wilds is just a tiddler right now and I'm already prepared to give him more space later on if he needs it or is creating too much waste for the tank. He's fine for now, however - and I'm amazed at how utterly the bettas ignore him, as they're highly curious, territorial and argumentative with each other/me/etc. But Om-nomnom is like a bit of decor, as far as they're concerned, lol.

I love my pleco. =)

The pleco doesn't live in the 10 g, he/she lives in the in the 20 g. The 10 g is empty right now.

Great thread! I'm getting ready to get a pair of Betta Albis and I've been searching for all the info I can get my hands on. It looks like are easy enough to care for.

Hey Tnvol, there is a big thread here on wild species bettas.

http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=116188

Having kept and bred albis in the past, they are one of the easiest and most peaceful wild species to keep. Mine were like guppies. So much so I got rid of them as I couldn't be bothered growing out so many fry haha.
