Amen to that. My pleco just pooped a lot and refused to eat algae. Otos eat even diatoms.

they only grow to 5 inches yes, which is to big for a 10 gallon tank, they also produce the same bio-load has a fish 3x its size imo.

My BN pleco is 9 inches, and poops tons. I'd. just trade him out for some ottos. I'd do the same if I wasn't so attached for the old guy. He was in a tank with a freshwater ray. It was crazy.

9 inches! Are you sure it was a bn pleco! Man! Well if he gets that big I can just put him in my 55 gallon, I'm just wondering if he will be good in a 10 gallon?

Mine is also 28 years old (roughly. We don't know for sure. He's had a lot of different owners).

EDIT: also, I'm pretty sure a BN pleco is the only pleco with gigantic bushy barbel type things on their faces.

I think 15 years is the normal life span.
