Old Pleco vs New Pleco
Is it bad to have 2 Pleco's in a tank together. My regular pleco was established for about 3 years. The pleco "Jaws" is a 8" regular pleco and the new pleco is a 5" Royal Pleco I named "Zooty the Pinstripe Gangster". Is it wise to make a hiding spot for my Royal pleco so my regular doesn't harass it? I'm afraid of him not eating. In his little spot I made him has 6 Clown loaches that might beat him to any food I give him any ideas on what to do? I'd hate to get rid of my regular pleco but I want to keep the royal pleco.
Yes, many plecos are aggressive with their own kind, and will not tolerate another, especially as the get older.
Hi Zooty, welcome to the forum. On keeping multiple plecos, what size is your tank? Yes, multiple hiding spots would be very beneficial. As far as your clowns making off with your plecos food...I have clowns and a pleco. I put the food in for my pleco at night, after the tank lights have gone off, and right before I go to bed. My clowns have already settled in for the night at this time and don't bother with my pleco's food.
Hi, not much to add here other than a welcome to the forum!
