small pleco

I have a 30g tank with a pleco. the problem is that me and my friend bought our pleco at the same time and same size and his pleco grew a lot faster then mine. He has lots of algae in his tank and i don't have any. His pleco is about 3 inches bigger then mine. Could the algae on my friends tank made the pleco grow faster then mine?

The other pleco just might have been older, and maybe he's eating more than yours. Getting them at the same time doesn't guarentee they're the same age

his might be getting more food.. I wouldnt worry about the growth diffence.. the species makes a diffence, the common pleco gets far to big for a 30 gallon tank..
