when ever i move in my room or go near my aquarim, my common pleco (Chad) always swims away to hide under his driftwood/rock thing.

he does this if he is eating cucumber or sucking on the side of the tank

is this normal or not?

60 gals is not big enough for a common pleco. It's not just their size, it's the incredible amount of waste they put out that fouls the tank quickly.

They also grow very quickly.

Actually that tank is right about the size that I'd recommend as a minimum for a common pleco.. works out to about 72 US gallons.

your tank seems rather overstocked right now ;:barf How soon you upgrading, and it says 15G in your profile you said 20G in the thread, or is that just how a 15G in UK translates to US?
