Yeah, pleco's get bigger, mine is about 15".

That pacu will easily get 15", maybe 20" if you can get it in a bigger tank where it can be healthy. I made the mistake of buying a pacu when I was just getting into the hobby, I had him for a long time, but they are just soo big and strong, eventually they get mean and start beating your other fish to death. I had mine in a 150g tank, he needed at least twice that to be healthy and happy.
