Hey guys unfortunatly when I came home today my RBP decided to do some carving with my common pleco. These two use to fight often as well. It is apearent that this One eyed freak will not tolerate anything picking on it for too long.
...
So I am open to suggestions on a bottom dweller that does not get big (even though the pleco would have eventually) and that wont bother messing around with the freak. Also one that the p wouldnt consider a prime meal would also be a bonus...

Go for a couple of raphael catfish: they look pretty neat, are efficient clean-up fish, and nocturnal, so the chance they get gutted is very small... Just make sure you provide some hiding places for them, and it should be fine, even with your psychopath red :smile:

Yeah there is plenty of hiding, just that last damn pleco liked to fight with the P especially over food, they would go at it for like 20 mins non-stop..... well STOP now anyways

Snails make excellent cleaners. Even armor catfish along with electric catfish get eaten up by reds. Seen it already.

Yeah, I'd go with snails too. Small tiny critters that wont take extra space in your tank. But do your homework, some snails are hemaphrodites and can/will multiply in your tank easily.
