I've had my boy for a week today, and he hasn't touched anything I've given him. I dunno what to do anymore. Every couple days I'll drop in an algae wafer, but maybe I'm just giving it to him too early, as I've read they're nocturnal. Perhaps, by the time he does want to eat, they're too squishy for him, so he won't. Tonight I"m going to try dropping a wafer in about a half hour after I turn out the lights, see if maybe that does the trick.
Yeah, I've heard Pleco's can be pigs once they actually settle in and learn who's going to be feeding them (much like our beloved bettas XD). Mine just seems reluctant to get to know me. Swims away whenever I find him, and he happens to be close to the glass.
Well, I tried giving him an algae wafer about an hour after I shut the lights off last night. Didn't touch it. In fact, it looked like he hadn't moved all night, as he was in the exact same spot I found him in before bed.
Well, I found it dead this afternoon. Starved to death, I guess. Had it a week, and it wouldn't touch anything I gave it. Time to go take it back. Might get another pleco at a later date and hope I have better luck.
