PLECOSTOMUS ATTACKING OTHER FISH!
 
I have 2 plecostomus that are really small and I got them from Petsmart. One of them has been attacking my Red blood Parrot fish and I separated the one pleco away and waiting for my blood parrot fish to recover. I don't know what to do right now. Its kinda in a bowl right now. I bought cucumbers to feed the pleco. What can I do to stop it from attacking the other fish if I put it back into the tank?

Can you list your tank size, and water parameters, how long has the tank been running? how big is your parrot?

My tank is 30 gallons and I have 2 red blood parrots and 2 plecostmus. Why do I need to post my water parameters when my fish is eating away another fish!?!?! pH 6.8 nitrite 0 nitrate 2. its been running like 6 years my parrot isnt even the size of my hand.

I have had the same problem awhile back.If one of the pleco's is being aggressive, try separating that one from the other fish with a tank divider until you can put him in a different tank. That is what I had to do, and it worked quite well. In fact I bought one of mine at petsmart, the other at petco.. hope it works out!
