Could my Pleco be doing this?

You may or may not have read my post about my Pleco who is apparently a recluse, never coming out of his cave. I stuck my arm in the tank and turned the cave over the last cleaning, just to have a look-see at him and make sure he was alive and well. Every couple of days, I notice the artificial plants have been uprooted and/or moved. I've had my cory cats for over a month and they don't uproot plants (the plants are weighted down) so I'm assuming it's my little recluse doing his thing as night.

I'm hoping you all agree, which means he is really doing ok.

How big are your tanks? If you need 75g or more for one common plec...that's a heck of a lot of water!

Unless you have the small ones...but I thought I read they need tons of water too!
