last night i noticed my pleco wasnt in his normal place. i looked around and couldnt find the little guy. my pleco had thick armor, i mean his skin was THICK> anyways searched for 5 minutes and then found a side fin.

i guess the reds got pissed or hungry and cleaned up shop. doesnt made sence to me. pleco keeps the tank clean. would you kill the maid who was cleaning your house?

bottomline. Nothing is 100 % workable with Ps. co inhabit at your own risk!

RIP SPOTS

yup it happend to one oif mine also, so i didnt bother replacing him as it would just as easy happen again,

they seem to target the belly of the plecs, it just takes them a litle time to figure out exactly how to get to the belly, but once they do the ples is screwed

Yep those P's a very smart. I have never had any sucess with trying to mix anything with P's. they say try and buy a pleco thats three times the size of your largest P. But they still find a way to flip it over and rip it apart.

RIP Maid Serice.
Whenever I have plecos in my tanks as cleaners I name them with maid names like Lupe`


Sorry to hear about your loss. It just goes to show everyone that plecos aren't always the best to cohab with piranhas, and certainly aren't guaranteed to survive.
