Lying and hiding, not the best way to be in a relationship. That being said, I do it too! Luckily for me our financial arrangement is what's his is his, mine is mine. It saves alot of grief that way. Now the only thing I have to contend with is rolling eyes when he sees something new that is fish related, lol.

Well Pleco's are omnivorous I think... I know they eat veggies (plants) cause you can lightly boil or blanch brocolli and zuccihini and once cooled drop pieces into the tank and they will love it! Gobble it up. However I think they clean up the bodies of deceased fish, or grab one going by too! lol
So until you re-house the pleco, or sell it back to the LFS, you will have plant troubles for sure. JMO.
good luck!
