I used to keep Milotic in a 10 gallon tank, but today a few days ago I changed him into a 5 gallon tank because thats all my new apartment will allow me to have. (like hell if I sell or flush him because of a stupid rule) Anyways Today I caught him down at the bottom of the tank eating the pleco's veggie pellets, I only feed the pleco twice a week but I have never seen him do this before. Anyway to stop him or can it hurt him? I'm just not sure what to do or if I should or can do anything about this.
Don't suggest isolating the pleco to feed him that would take over an hour and a spare tank that I don't have.
