Question Pleco on Heater

Hey ya'll! So I just recently added two Plecos to my 30 gallon tank and everything is going great. My females are not paying them any mind. Anyway one of my Plecos is continually attaching himself to my heater. Is this a bad thing? And this might be a stupid question but can he get burned or hurt his mouth? Thanks!

You gotta love Bettas!

Nah, I wouldn't worry about it. My snail used to sleep on the heater before I moved her to the 10gal.

And no they can't really get burned from it. If you think about it the heater is putting off about 80* temperatures and we're at 98.6 so if we don't burn them by touching them, then the heaters wont

What kind of plecos?
