Anyways, the pleco is now with Brad the oscar in the 80 gallon Also getting hit with that pleco tail feels like a whip o_o owey.

Lol, I have a 3 foot tall prickly pear. I am thinking the spines of a pleco feels the same

Awesome that you rescued him/her c:

I rescued a pleco in similar conditions, it was in a 30 gallon but was 18 inches long. Poor thing just stayed curled up in the corner since there wasnt room to move. It had been in that tank for over 5 years, pretty sure never cleaned.

I had my brother wrestle him down, there was no way I could have done it LOL. There was also a bala shark in there that kept jumping up and hitting him in the face XD

I dont have a tank thats big enough for a pleco (boo apartments!) so I gave him to my lfs whose owner I'm friends with. The pleco lives in a large pond now :D

He died of old tank syndrome. There was an ammonia spike so I did a 100% water change and i lost my whole tank to the shock.
