removing plecos


I'd like to thank all who offered their suggestions on how to remove my
little clown plecos from a heavily planted tank.  I finally got the last
of the two moved last night.  I used zucchini as bait in a pint jar lying
on it's side.  When I saw a pleco in the jar I lifted it out and
transfered it to another tank.  There were a few problems.  Most every
fish in the tank turned out to be fond of the zucchini (tetra's and cory's
accepted).  The SAEs took to stealing the squash out of the trap and when
I finally caught the last plecos I caught a swordtail along with him.
