Is it normal for a bristlenose pleco to be aggressive?
I thought that my Betta was going to be the most aggressive fish in my tank...but it turns out it is my bristlenose pleco! The Betta is surprisingly chill...he'd rather just have his swimmy space and he's allll good.
The bristlenose however, is a different story. He gets really, for lack of a better term, 'lunge-y' during feeding time. I keep finding him sucking on the albino cories to get them out of his way...and he will dart at the Betta to make him go away. I don't think he's going to hurt anyone, but I am worried about him stressing out the little cories? I guess they don't really care, they just keep coming back after he boots them out of the way haha.
Does he need company or is this just normal feeding time behavior?
