If you just got it it will take a bit of time for it to adapt to its home and as Blue said they are nocturnal so try feeding it before you go to sleep.

Try feeding it some bloodworm or shrimp pellets, but not too often and before you go to sleep put a spoon through a slice of Cucumber or Zuccini for it to eat and then take it out in the morning.

I'm a Pleco addict!

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.

thanks everyone, as far as the size goes, I have read that they get to 6" but I also read that they get to 15" so I guess only time will tell. I think they are pretty slow growers anyway (right?).

90gal: 2x Tangerine Discus, 2x Clown Pleco, 2x Catfish.
75gal + 10gal sump: 2x Large Goldfish, 1x Common Pleco, 14x Leopard Danios
55gal: 5x Angelfish, 1x Common Pleco, 8x SIlver Tip Tetras, 16x Neon Tetras, 8x Albino Corys

Depends on how you take care of it.
