I am quite sure they cannot be kept together with lobster or a crab.. they don't actually belongs to the same group. Lobster and crab need some dry land. Secondly, the lobster or a crab won mind having goldfish for a meal. As for pleco, it will depend actually. Most of us will not advise you in mixing them with pleco. But if you want to take the risk, please feed the pleco well with greens to minimise the disturbance to the goldfish. And bro, i don't think the words in bold sound really nice. Please try to rephrase that next time.
Thanks.

I think what qatar son meant with his last sentence is:
Please assist if you (people) are capable of doing so (mixing goldfish with lobster,crab, pleco, clown loach)

A simple "english-as-second-language" problem, me thinks....

I am talking about a crab or lobster which is about the size of the stars below , an smaller than my goldfish but bigger than pleco and clown loach.

*********************************************

i dont think the fish will fit in his tiny mouth.

my pleco is tiny and always hiding i am not shure if it eats it lived with me 1 and a half years and what do we feed pleco , however the clown loach eats the same food as the goldfish it snaches any pec soked in water .

O.. sorry if i have misunderstood you. Even though the fish cannot fit into his mouth, the crab and lobster can still tear the fish into tiny pieces. for pleco they feed on aglae. On the market there are quite a few food made for pleco.
