Unhappy Poor Derek :(

My Plec Derek seemed really quiet since Sunday, then I noticed he was lying on his back, at first we thought he was dead but his mouth was moving so realized he wasnt, I hadnt seen him eat for a few days so I put some cucumber in and he wouldnt touch it, I tried putting his wafers right near his mouth nothing...then he was upright again but didnt move much at all for a few days...Then tonight (if your squeamish dont read on) We noticed he had a big hole in his stomach :( my weather loaches I think had been eating him and he was still alive:(. I am so squeamish I love my fish but when they become ill and look bad I throw up...I didnt know what to do so I called round my neighbours who came and got him out the tank, And shortly after he passed away.
He was about 8 or 9. He looked so thin like you could see ripples in his body that weren't there before im sure, I wonder what was wrong. Poor little thing ill sure miss him stuck to the side of my tank and im so sad about it :(

im real sorry Cinnomen D:
your loaches maybe saw it on it's back and thought it was dead so they decided to see if they could chow down?
i dunno what was wrong with your Pleco, but i am really sorry for your loss!
i hope that you can someday get a new pleco and keep Derek in your heart :)
