That is wild! Is it a Bristlenose? I guess he is finding more food in the filter basket.

no ,just your normal pleco fish..

Yeah you're right ,He is looking for food .For the last week i change the fish food around and hes the only one in the tank that wont eat the blood worms, flakes ,shrimp pellets etc .He loves the tetra color tropical granules though . I feel sorry for him though, my tank hardly gets any algae build up for him to eat

Put a cucumber slice in the tank for him. He should love it! Or get some algae wafers that sink to the bottom.

I tried the wafers already .He just ignores the wafers and leaves it for my crayfish ..Never thought about the cucumbers? I'll give that a try.

The little troll is a picky eater .

Just a raw slice is all you need. I use a clip, that suctions on the glass. Remove the seeds, they don't eat them, and will end up littering the tank.
