No, that's not Eli's tank, though the pleco is a representative size for the one he has. He has a 38-40 gallon tank, so his fish have plenty of room to grow. The pleco is his largest, followed by 5 clown loches, and then about 20 or so guppies.

Back when I had fish I had a little pleco. About 2 inches as well. I kept him in a tank with 3 goldfish.

Sounds like your mom has the fish bug too . I have a 55, 2 10s and a 20 long here in Ioway, might bring some more over here after the 4th since my sister is getting sick of having so many (I left her some of my tanks when I moved, plus a couple were hers already), there are like 4 or so 5's, 2 10's and a 20 long there. I find the bigger tanks are easier to care for than the smaller ones, I started with a 1.6 gal and it was a pain, undergravel "filtration" is a joke as far as I am concerned, now it is power filters or nothing, I dismantled the tanks under 5 gallons since the 5s all have filters and the smaller ones do not. I adore my 55, it was my graduation/house warming present to myself when I moved to Ioway, my mommy would not let me get one when I still lived at home, she does not like my tanks.

Goodness your brother has issues ! Shrimp are very tasty, though I would not eat a ghost shrimp, too cute and tiny!
