I have noticed since I put the GOld Spilo in the tank my Pleco seems to be more tattered. His tail and his fins are being trimmed constantly. I never see it I just see the end result. WIll I be able to keep a Pleco with my SPilo???

I never owned a spilo, but based on what I read I have to say "no", because usually the pleco gets killed. And it always starts with nips...

I would move it.
Their are no guarentees with piranhas, but all tankmates are potentially on the menu.

I have a pleco in with my spilo, the pleco is bigger than him, and his tail is still all nipped to hell. I would say if you care about your pleco, or anything else for that matter, don't mix.
