info...

I don't know if this info will help, but I used to have a larger pleco (about 12 in.) and he would shoot to the surface all the time and he was always visible and eating. He was very healthy and the water params were good, so I just attributed it to his personality. I had to give him away later because he quickly outgrew my old 10 gallon tank. Perhaps yours just has a quirky personality :D

Now I have a 55 gallon tank and a small pleco. This pleco never comes out of all his hiding places so he is hardly ever visible. I rarely see him shoot to the surface at all. It makes me miss my large pleco who was always out and jetting around :cry:

Hope yours is ok :)
