mine lurkes around the tank,but soon knows when the pellets are droped in.
i think he only comes out now in the light because he's grown.

Have you tried putting a little driftwood in the tank for the pleco? I have read that they like a little driftwood in their diet. If you do get a piece of driftwood, make sure it has some way to weigh it down. I wouldn't give up on your pleco just yet. My pleco I have had for years and is full grown (12 inches) it likes it's cave but does come out periodically.

Let me know if this helps

you can pick the wood up cheap enough,depending on what size you want,
check out craigs list ? the LFS charge quite a bit.
you could try some zuccini weighted down,or cucumber,they like that too,
and your other fish will pick at it too.

Depends on what you consider expensive. I bought this piece for about $25 for my 75 gallon from my local fish store. It's a good size piece and came with a stone base (under the gravel) to weigh it down.
