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.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
