Exclamation Betta being mean?

I just added a pleco to my tank with my half moon betta and everything seems alright. But Apollo (betta) flares at my pleco a little and gets close but my pelco moves away and fends him off by moving his tail. Other than that they ignore eachother. Is this natural? Thanks!

Bettas ae curious and he is probably just investigating this new inhabitant. He should get over it.

Be warned that plecos get very large, and even the smaller species like bristlenoses have such a heavy bioload/large adult size that they should not be kept in tanks smaller than 20 gallons.

I know, I love my tanks and i'm planning on getting a larger tank before he gets too large. But thank you :)
