I have a planted 10 gallon that's well established and has been for the past year; no fish, but tons of 'scuds' thriving which hitchhiked off some plant(s).
I'm planning on a betta fish, I'm thinking about adding a common pleco temporarily? And ~5? neocaridina shrimp (after the pleco if I decide on it.)
My dad has an aquaponic system (~350 gallons) the pleco would live in after it's outgrown the 10 gallon.
I'm not deciding right away, not entirely sure if I'm even going to add a pleco into my aquarium. I need to do more research, but in the meantime..

How long can a baby pleco be kept in a 10 gallon with a betta fish?
Petco sells them at approx. 3-3.5 inches long, if that helps.

Tell me all your thoughts, newbie here!
Thank you~!

I wouldn't even consider it. You would never know when it out grows it as it would stunt the growth. Just put shrimp in. Make sure you have plenty of plants for the shrimp to hide in as they could become an expensive snack for betta.
