I just bought a plecostomus?

I bought a pleco and I'm scared it will grow too big! help! i was just wondering if there were some kind of smaller species of plecos?

You can give it back to the pet store if it gets too big. They might even give you another fish. Mine got to be about twenty inches before I gave it away.

if you want a big one, raise it in a tub.

plecos do get very large regardless of the size of the tank (sometimes reaching up to 24"). years ago I had two that I had to rehome because was moving and I contacted some local pet stores who had very large display tanks in their stores and asked them if they wanted them for their display tanks and they happily took them. also if your area has a public aquarium sometimes they will take large aquarium fish.

Some smaller breeds of plecos are rubber lip plecos. I have one and it is only about 5 inches right now
