I bought a GN Pleco (not sure which designation) a month ago on sale at a local LFS. It mostly hid for the first couple weeks, but normally was visible in between a couple stacked terracotta pots. It would sparingly come out of that spot - and I think (s)he chose it because it's a dead water flow spot in the tank where a lot of food settles. Since adding a small school of Rust Cory's to the tank, he's coming out a lot more. Not sure if he just feels more comfortable with them around, they aren't going into his spot at all so don't think he's disturbed. Could also be competing more with food. Anyway - there has been no noticeable growth with him in the month I've had him. He's just over 2 inches I imagine. How do I know if he's getting enough food? I heard these pleco's are on the fragile side - but I heard they are the most susceptible in the first couple weeks, so assuming I may be doing something right. Anyone have GN's that can share any wisdom or advice with me? Here is a pic of mine a couple days ago - about 2 days after adding the cory's he started coming out on the glass during the day (something he only did at night previously).
