I have a pleco that is floating at the top. Attaching to side of bucket
My pleco is floating at the top of a 5 gallon quarantine bucket. Its the only thing I could put it in. Other then my other aquarium is a 5 gallon desktop aquarium with 1 baby fish and plants in it. I was wondering is this pleco dead despite being able to attach it self to the side of the bucket. I think it moves a little though.

i would say as long as he is attached,then he's ok.
is he new ?

No he just got sick. Stopped moving and was on his back. He has all his fins extended. Plus one fin is damaged. Almost gone. I am hoping he will grow it back again and start moving normaly.

keep the water as clean as you can,you will already know that,but
just thought i'd say,and perhaps a small amount of melafix/primax ?
what sort of tank was he in befor he got sick ?

Thank you for your answer. I am using mela and prime right now. He was in a 36 gallon bow front. I have a filter on the 5 gallon bucket and amonia remover filter.

Well I lost the pleco. I knew he or she wasnt eating or ataching to anything any more. Plus the gills were pushed in too.
