Yep, the commons get very big. If you can find a place to re-home them, you could replace them with a smaller pleco, like a bristlenose or a clown pleco. These stay in the 4-5 inch range. I've got a bristlenose and it's a very entertaining and personable fish.

Update: Got new 2215 yesterday. Vacuumed gravel, added fresh water, washed all new filter parts while I waited an hour+ for tank to settle back down, and then setup new filter. It's purring like a kitten. Whisper quiet. Water is crystal clear.

Also, found home for largest common plecos, keeping smaller till I get something else was thinking of getting shrimp instead since they will eat the little bit of black algae I get on the plastic coral and plants. Was also thinking of adding a little driftwood with some java moss as well to eat up the nitrates so maybe won't get the algae so much.
