I had a 6inch pleco that started to get aggressive with my RES, chase them over food, try and attach etc. I got rid of the pleco it scared me that it would attach to them and hold them under

I hope not. They other plecko has been with the turts since he was a baby, but this one, was rehomed to us when we got the big tank to house it.

WOW! That's a huge pleco. I would also be a bit concerned about having one that big in with my turtles.

Yeah, I think he is like a foot long. We keep a close eye on them. The tank is right behind the computer.

Maybe feed Bob at night, while Mikey is asleep. Though if he's like my RES, he'll figure out a way to sleep-eat :roll:

Yea mine do too. We put enough veggie rounds in everyone, if it becomes an issue bob will just have to go back to where he came from.
