thank you so much for that pic, i aprecieate the effort you put cause i know im to lazy to put pics in lol... the only problem is that i tried that and the poop in the rock crevaces was just piling up so i would have to take out all the rocks, clean the poo then put them back in.... if i am going to sell the fish i wont do it soon, although when they start to get to big for the tank i will sell them... as long as i can handle the cleaning and the fish arent confined i will keep them.

Most of that poop is probably from the Pleco...Get rid of him now... You won't really have a chance later...

A fishes' size will only reach a certain point in a certain tank until health effects spontaneusly pop up.
And once the fish is stunted, simetimes it's permenant. You'll be stuck with trying to sell a sick deformed fish...

At least the pleco, maybe wait on the dempsey if you're attached, but wouldn't that be more of a reason to find it a better home?
