    Hello, I currently have a 20gl tank with a small angel and some pristella tetras. It also has 1 pleco thats only about 2 inches long. I have 1 cory cat that I would like to add to the tank, and possibly get more if it works out. My pleco, although I am not sure what type it is, will not get any bigger, but sometimes gets aggressive if I don't feed him right away. By aggressive, I mean chases the angel, but he never catches him so I am not worried. However, I am nervous that if I put the cory in, the pleco will get territorial.

    Please let me know. Thank you guys in advance!

    You really need to determine why type of pleco you have. If he's chasing the angel, he's not getting enough to eat, or not enough of what he wants to eat. Post a picture, perhaps?

    I wouldn't recommend adding a solo cory. It would be stressed out and you wouldn't see the real dynamics. It's difficult to say if the pleco will go after them, since there really aren't many small plecos that display the behavior you've described.

    They will be fine EXCEPT corys are better in small schools than alone
