 Plecostomous and red eared slider?

I had two RES and a pleco. As long as the pleco is bigger than the turtles than they shouldnt bother it.

If its getting dirty you may need to do more water changes or get a better filter. Once the plecos get big they seem to get lazy and not clean the tank as much.
