What are your water parameters?

Hi PLECO, I would recommend that you get yourself a testing kit to monitor that water parameters in the tank.

The main things you will want to test for are

Ammonia
Nitrite
Nitrate

A good testing kit is the API master test kit which can be found in most good LFS. Avoid test strips as these are unreliable.

How long has your tank been running, how long have you had the fish and how often do you do water changes?

Pleco, we cannot help further if you don't see the results of your water parameters. Please test your ammonia, nitrites and nitrates.
