JoCinWB Posted April 16, 2021 Share Posted April 16, 2021 I moved my common pleco to a larger tank four weeks ago. He was alone before for a long time. He occasionally did some fast turning in the past but not a lot of flopping around. Now he's smacking the lid of the tank many times a day. He never did this before. The other tank had a black hood, this has a glass flat lid. Our water is very soft (I will address that shortly) but the other numbers are good. He sticks to the glass sometimes, as usual, but also does that leap face-first straight up. He used to come to the surface when I dropped in some flakes, but no longer does this. He sometimes grabbed his algae wafers and carried them around eating them, but does not do this now. I add a pinch of flake in the morning and give him his wafer at night. His companions now are three mollies. Is this normal? Was his generally placid behavior in the past NOT normal? I've had this guy for maybe eight years. I'm concerned. Also on edge bc his leaping is startling me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
