what kind of pleco is it? some can grow to be quite big, and you'll need to find a new home for him very soon if you've got the wrong kind.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

The Mollies will need a larger tank. If the pleco is what I'm hoping it is, he and the guppies will be fine in the 10 gal.

I have seen one of those grow to be the length of my arm!!!!
**also, why is the betta removed from this tank? He should be okay in there if there's plenty of plants for hiding.

No, pet stores tell you that to make a sale. Those plecos will far exceed that tank in time.
