I had a common that did that. Even when I fed him first. That boy was a hungry growing machine. Lol

Haha that's hilarious! I've never seen a pleco eat like that, mine will eat from the bottom and strictly from the bottom. Thank you for sharing this hahah, it's quite amusing

Thanks guys, the sad part is that ever since he went in my indoor pond he has stopped eating like that and I see him less who can tell the species name of all the inhabitants in the video?

The close up of the pleco's mouth is cool..... you can actually see the way it works its lips, tongue/tonsil like thing and the size of its throat to swallow - nature is fascinating!

It is also cool the way he manages the air build up - blowing some bubbles back through its gills and some out of its mouth - cool!

Actually I had a vid of three BN's side by side doing this. Can't find it.
