Hey everyone,

My LFS just got a dwarf bumblebee pleco (L015) and I was wondering what care was like for these guys. He'd be going into a 55 gallon community (temp around 78).

What do you feed? What do I need in the aquarium to make it happen?

Any tips would be great!

Feed zucchinis and meatier foods like bloodworms.
They are omnivorous but like meatier foods just like L018 plecos.

I have a sinking pellet for my cories. Would that be a good option? I know some plecos are good on algae, is this one of those?

On algae, it isn't super effective.
If the cory pellets are meatier, they are good for the pleco.
