I would advice against it, goldfish are coldwater and plecos are tropical, and in some cases, the pleco sucks the slime coat of the goldfish, I can suggest a hillstream loach though

Also what could live with a pleco in cold water. Thanks I had a tank for seven months now but something went wrong down the road. I had 8 fish thriving then got a cichlid and things went bad. So sadly I had to flush him down the toilet. And then only one left is the pleco. So yea and after recovering from scars I want fish and I came across this website joined and very helpful joined today.

You do realize common plecos get longer than the 10 gallon itself?

Woa man, no then never mind, the small species of pleco need at least a 20 gallon, I would get a 29 gallon (30 inches long by 12 inches wide by 18 inches tall) you can comfortably keep 2 in there carefully
