I have had common pleco suck the insides out of 50 adult sized ghost shrimp in less than 10 minutes so I would not be surprised to see them eat anything they can get their mouths around. As for other pleco, I couldn't tell you.

it is too bad no place to post a vid, I took a HD vid with my cam at feeding time. I think the pleco is going to have to go.
