RE: Is my Pleco sick?


I had a pleco that showed similar behavior.  I think it learned that it
could eat the algae on the center brace of the tank.  Over time it also swam
inverted to eat the flake food from the surface.  Hope that helps.

Hi all,

I have a 2 yr old pleco that has recently been floating upside down at the
top of
the tank...just hanging there, beside the side of the tank and outflow bar
of the
filter.  His fins actually stick out of the water a bit.  He does this for a
then goes back down...only to reappear, doing it again.  He looks fine, no
fish are ill or weird acting...just wondering if he may be ill or just
