I just got a breeding pair of Convicts, will my pleco be safe? Right now they are in a 10g (yes, I know, too small)
Oh, there are plenty of hiding places for him.jason_nj said:Normally I would say probably since plecos are pretty tough but there's no where for him to go in a 10G tank. So I would say no, he's not safe unless you have a rock or something he can hide in where the cons can't get him.
I know it's still early to tell, but so far my pleco is holding his own. The male con nipped at him once or twice, but stopped after my pleco chased him around the tank lol.duds said:I had cons and a pleco for a bit in my 75 and the pleco's fins got torn to shreds. He was fine when he hid in the cave, but if he went for the algae the cons would attack him until he hid again. So I would suggest you pay close attention to the level of aggression that the cons show towards the pleco. I doubt the pleco would be fatally harmed, but the constant abuse isn't ideal.
