Who is mauling my anglefish ?


Recommended Posts

This is going to be a bit difficult to find the answer but hopefully someone has first hand experience with this issue:

First this is a picture of the fish (there are 5 angles with this isuse):



I'm very good at speculating but i'd like something a bit more concrete. In the aquarium i have the following candidates:

bn pleco

L204 pleco

clown loach

yoyo loach


I've been leaning towards bn pleco or yoyo loach since the angels show no skittishness when the clown loaches eat with them in the morning but i'm not sure. I'm also not sure what to do if i can identify the fish doing this damage. 


Has anyone seen this sort of damage before and been able to verify which fish was the aggressor ?

maybe a loach pecked at it, but i can virtually guarantee no BN pleco did that.

Ok. I know some pleco will attack discus (eat the slime); if it is a loach the question then is which one - they really aren't skittish around the clown so maybe the yoyo?
