Has anyone else had this experience? I bought a female BN pleco about 2 weeks ago and have her in with my Malawi cichlids. Not only is she less shy and reclusive than I expected, but she actually stands up for herself. The cichlids don't really harass her, but if she has a spot staked out and the cichlids get into her space, she chases them out. She doesn't bite (wrong kind of mouth for that) but she'll headbutt them until they clear out. Is this common? I always thought plecos were timid.
