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.

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.

What! That BIG! Well I heard all fish grow according to their surroundings.

here; the 10 gallon tank. If I see him growing too much I'll look for a bigger bigger tank.

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