I fed my discus this morning (like every morning) live blood worms in a feeder cone. To my surprise, my pleco swam up to the top to see what all the commotion was about and latched himself onto the feeder con and started gobbling some blood worms up. I've never seen him do that, and I had thought that they were mostly herbivores. Interesting.
Plecos will eat anything and I mean anything darn near. Mine, both common and BN would eat grindal worms, blood worms, blackworms, night crawlers, shrimp pellets, fish flakes, betta bites, crab bites, fruits, veggies, and on occassion would actually chew on some algae if it was really bored.
Heh, honestly, I'm unsure. I rescued him a long time ago from ()Petsmart(). He's nothing fancy, although at times when he stretches his dorsal fin out, he resembles a sail fin pleco. But I'm sure he's not. I sold one of those the other day, a beautiful specimen.
