You will need to think of larger, 6"+ plecos as you would a catfish. Whatever will fit in their mouth will be eaten. They won't actively hun t down fish but will snap up a passerby if it gets to close. You won't have that problem with smaller plecs.

You make it sound like they actively hunt them down!!

Wrong imo

Hi I am new here, found the site looking for info on pleco's attacking other fish. It never fails at feeding time my pleco becomes increasingly aggressive at feeding time. My tank just has the pleco and 2 fancy shubunkins and 2 regular shubunkin gold fish. My fancy shubunkins have no tails left from my pleco feeding on them, any suggestions or comments?
