    Hi, this thread is for all of the people who wanted to see my evil BN pleco in action. I stayed up late at night, when the lights were off, using only ambient light, and caught video of him trying to take down his tank mates. I took the videos the night before I took him back to the LFS... Well, I just realized I have no idea how to post a video... or tag people.... can someone help me out here?

    The way I do it is upload it to YouTube and then post the link here.

    Did that work? This is the first of several short videos, terrible lighting I know, but she only hunted with lights out. In this she is "fishing". She waits near a food wafer and when other fish come by she lunges. She obviously failed to catch the zebra danio, and she hasn't had any success with danois. Only neons, blackskirts, cardinals, and otos, though she got in lots of battles with my angel. Iknow it barely looks like an attack at all, I was really suprised the first time I saw her take down a tetra like that.

    Super interested to see this! Also, the video is unavailable as I think it's set on private for you? Go into your YouTube and make the video public. Other than that idk.

    Kind of hard to make out. Looks like that silvery fish got too close and the BN is territorial.

    Bingo! Can see the video now Looks like the Pleco is very protective of his food. My baby BN Pleco has learned that the guppies in my tank will bite his tail of he doesn't show them who's boss. Whenever a guppy goes near his little driftwood cave, he swims out and goes straight for them its really fun to watch

    That is what mine does when I feed him. But he doesn't attack them. He just pushes them very softly. Doesn't attach to them at all:)

    I don't see a thing but my BN's show the mentioned behaviour. And certainly when they are hungry they get grumpy !! But they never will kill fish
