someone told me that my pleco will eat the fish heads out of the bottom of the tank but after my P's killed a goldfish all he would do is suck on the head...

unfortunately my pleco died in a sand experiment ....poor little guy

i think they eat the slime coat off the fish head, or bacteria maybe...
but who knows they may be biting flesh too

My pleco's are suckers for meat as well, and they are not picky... Feeder remains, shrimp, semi-alive feeders, chicken, beefheart: it doesn't matter, they'll eat just about anything they find. The can't eat entire fish heads, but they'll strip all the meat from the bones.
