Re: Plant Eating Plecos

I had a similar experience with a clown pleco. Actually for a couple of years
it was a very well behaved resident of the tank. Then I placed a large Amazon
sword in the tank and it just could _NOT_ resist those tender tasty leaves.
The fish almost killed the plant in a matter of a week. 

Needless to say he/she was traded in at the LFS for other fish stuff ;D

the act.>>
