Yup. All true.butterbean 3 said:My common pleco never has liked algae wafers he does like the cucumber and other veggies but I have never know one that didn't eat the shrimp pellets they love them. You just need to give it time for the smell to reach him. They go straight down so just drop them above where he is. They also like fresh shrimp. They can become quite aggressive over food at about 7 or 8 inches depending on the other fish in the tank.
