PostSubject: I cant get another pleco :(   Fri Jan 28, 2011 6:42 pm

Hi,

i know this is a bit weird thing to talk about here but:
i have a 75 gallon tank with 2 common bristlenoses and a school of neons and I told my mum that I want to buy another pleco. But she said no because they poop alot, and she cant see them (i can cause i know where to look). I vacuum the aquarium regularly. Is there a way to clean pleco poop apart from using a vacuum?? So yeah, please help, even though this isnt what youre used to

thanks

I find that if you have a good filter that produces a bit of current it often will pick the poo up and either catch it itself or cause it to pile up in the corner.

I recently upgraded all the filters in my breeding tanks with bigger, more powerful ones and the poop all gathers in a corner, well away from the breeding cave making cleaning much simpler and safer Smile

If she can't see them she wouldn't notice one more would she?

Sorry mum :roll:
