Hi Oscar.

Were you referring to the tips of its tail? If so, it seems it won't.
Sorry to see your plec's tail is broken. He looks pretty.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Fighting I belive, I think because of the shape of his tail it looks just prone to weakness in a fight. He has been moved between my plec community tanks and although growing well, his tail just gets worse

u say fighting ? with what? I have a pleco, not the same one , but similar and it jumped out of my tank. I get home and he looked dead. i picked him up and started moving. i put him in the tank, he was looking really bad. his tail and fins were broken. i thought he was gone. but he healed up and everything grew back in a few weeks. i really don't know why your plec's tail is getting worse though. maybe he'll get better.sorry i cant really help

No probs rich, I think I may have posted this in the wrong section anyway? He was fighting with other plecs by the way!
