ok here it goes
i have several plecos just common ones they are in a 29 gallon with snails i breed and are around 2-4 inches i bought them one for each of my tanks to get rid off alge i then noticed them getting really skkinny and moved them to the 29 gallon so they could be feed good i now move them to the other tanks when the tanks are full of alge and then back to the 29 once ther job is done.
i had one in my oscars 75 gallon that was 4 inches and it started sucking,rasping.or biteing my flat head and syodinis in there so i removed it as a result of the biting the other to cats have sence died is this normal? is ther a way to stop it? also since the cats in the oscar tank have died could i move all the plecos in to this tank with the oscars with out fear of them getting chewed on.
i also have a 6 inch sail fin pleco in my 55 egypt tank and he is forever hiding i put peas and alge waffers in the hidding spot so i know he is getting food is there any way to get him to come out more when he was little he was always out at feeding time and he became a tank favorite now ill i see of him is his tail pokeing out the back of his hideing place is tank mates include 3 parrotchiclids 3 ranibow fish 3 clown loaches and a segal bicher

55 gallon cold water gold fish tank
3 10 gallon tropical platy tanks
55 gallon tropical live bearer commuity tank
