How much to feed 1 1/2" clown pleco?

I just added a small clown pleco and bought omega one veggie rounds. How often should i put one in tank? it seems too large to put in every day.

Every other night, right after lights out. Other fish will nibble at it too

I put one a day but I have 2 plecos and 5 kuhlis and also 3 shrimp so I am pretty stocked on the bottom feeders, maybe half a day

If you only drop in one every other night I'm willing to bet there will be nothing left in the morning. If so, you can always suck it out with a turkey baster.

For my little clown pleco I stick in one disc a day. I have seen him munching on it in the middle of the day, and when he is done my four little habrosus cories dig in and finish it off for him.

Of course I am using a different brand, and I think the Omega's you are talking about are a bit larger than the ones I use. But I agree other fish will nibble at it...my rasboras and tetras seem to think they are part cories and like to nipple at it once in a while as well.

I have also noticed my clown pleco likes to munch a little bit on the sinking shrimp pellets I put in for my cories.
