Planning to add Bristlenose Pleco to cichlid tank. Put in some Repashy and the Cichlids ate it all in 10 minutes. If I add the Pleco and and the Repashy he will never get anything to eat if the Cichlids eat it. How else do I feed Pleco? Help?

The pleco is supposed to eat the algae, and if he needs more to eat, he will fight for it.

You may not see him eat. Just watch his belly to be sure it is plump.

For fishkeeper peace of mind you could add canned French cut salt free green beans for the pleco.

I would not add one fish to an established tank. Wait until you can add a group of 3 or more fish at once.
