Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a nice day.

So, I have an Angelfish, a guppy, and a bristlenose pleco in my tank. The Angel and guppy are very fast, agressive eaters, while the pleco, is not. Even though I try to distract the other two with pellets while I drop the algae wafer in, once they are done gobbling up the pellets, the angel goes right for the algae wafer and attacks that.

So, my question is, how do I make sure my pleco gets fed enough, while also making sure my angel and guppy don't get overfed?

-Thanks!

Well....The angel goes completely sideways to get under the driftwood to get to the algae wafer...and the pleco just sits there...😭

Are you feeding during the day? Or at night? Plecos are at least partially nocturnal from what I know, and most other fish feed by sight (where they use those little whiskers). The only way I can keep my Betta from the Cory's food is to feed late a night, with all the lights off. That way, my betta is usually sleeping or at the very least, can't see where the food is very well.

Definitely try that if you haven't already. :)
