    Plecs are a tropical species, I wouldn't keep the two together as the target temp for Plecs is considerably higher then the long term comfort range for goldfish.

    What type of Pleco? Common? Panaque? Hyphancistrus? Pseuadacanthicus? Leporacanthicus? See planetcatfish.com

    You're in canada? With a pleco out in the pond? Soon to be dead pleco unless he's just summered outside.
