Hehe yeah my Mister was 7 years old strong :) he was an ancient man xDD

And yours, again like I said, is "fine" for now but take into account... like a goldfish, plecos can get stunted. Although most plecos I have personally seen take a while to grow, just remember the biolaod will increase as the pleco gets bigger :)

Common plecos are really bad, if they don't get the food they need, they will resort to sucking off a fish's slime coat, so I say return it if you still can.

Hmmm I personally actually never knew that. So they basically resort to going after your fish? Good thing I told my friend NO when she wanted one for her ten gallon! (is the fish lady in this town, I know what fish are okay with bettas, if I know your betta I can find the fish :p I know how to stock tanks... lol)

The pet store I got my Clown Pleco from told me the same thing (that he would eat my bettas slime coat if not fed enough). So then I was all worried and fed him a quarter of an algae wafer, only to find out that Knight Rider thought the wafer was for him and would not stop eating it. I sucked the thing out since he looked like he was going to explode (and still eating!). But I guess my pleco is content eating my driftwood and rock algae as I have not fed him (or Knight Rider) a wafer since :/

Many people usually have relatively small tanks with plastic/silk decorations(no driftwood or algae) and thats what generally starves the pleco. There are some plecos that won't do that and they also don't grow as large so getting those would be better in the long run.

@ MistersMom, I advise you to return the pleco it is a common one because those in the long run are more likely to give you many problems. My common pleco that I got about 1.5 inches long is now 9 inches and that took only a year and some. Feeding them becomes a problem if you feed algae wafers because those are expensive when your pleco becomes huge and requires more food daily. I've also had it during last fall kill off some goldfish and koi that I had because it finished all the algae and vegetables. I would say exchange it at the petstore for a bristlenose or bulldog/rubberlip since those stay a relatively small and won't bother/kill your fish.
