Thanks for the advice. The pleco is under 6 inches...he is probably about 4 1/2 inches long. I feed my fish tropical red flakes, so their poop is normally red. I give my pleco algae wafers, but he never seems to eat them and he doesn't seem to be growing and I've had him for 6 months now. I went to do another water change and noticed that the water was quite cold. I realized that the heater was broken and that was probably why they were pale and acting funny. I bought a new heater and they seem to be acting better, although the waste is still excessive; I guess it's all from the pleco? I don't know.

I have an albino corydora and I can't get the poor thing to find the food. But if you have barbs, they will eat the wafer, specially if it is fish meal and plant based like the ones I put in my tank. Make sure the wafer is gone before you add more. Uneaten food will always contribute to undesirable tank conditions. I always know mine is gone cus my barbs attack it. lol.

Best of luck!
