oh, i forgot to include that, didn't i? ok, he's a common pleco. and today i came home from school, and he was laying on his side in the gravel, which gave me a mini heart attack, and so i thought he was dead, so i reached in to grab him and discard him, when all of a sudden he bolted away! and i literally jumped! so which leads to the question; how can i get him to reconize shrimp and flakes as food, rather than just algae?! i think i might be starving him......... yeah, thats happened a few times! lol! so please respond, ASAP!!!! thnx alot!!!

I took mine back to the pet store, hoping they could find a home for him better suited to his needs.
What makes you think he's dying? Just listlesness? If he's starving, did you try feeding? (Silly question, but I feel like I have to ask!)
