The Pleco survived and after watching him for a good while decided he was clean and put him in my 55g tank.
Anyways to my question....He will often have trails of feces hanging out I'd say between 6-10 inches. It's kind of disgusting. haha. I wan't sure if this was normal for the common pleco because my BN Pleco I have had for about a year isn't like that. Diet is flakes, algae wafers, dried brine shrimp and dried blood worms. Will be starting to give freeze dried glass worms in the next week.
Anyone else see this with their Pleco?
Yes, If they aren't trailing a stream of poop ,,there's something wrong with em.
