Every time I feed my fish in my 45 gallon tank I usually throw in some shrimp pellets for the bottom feeders. The bottom feeders go crazy over them, but I've also noticed that my albino Bushy Nose Pleco has been going crazy over them, too. I understand that Plecos are supposed to be herbivores, so is it bad for my Pleco to eat these shrimp pellets?

Not at all. Mine go for the pellets as well. As long as they have other varied foods, there shouldn't be a problem. I think they are just opportunists and will eat whatever thats there :emoji_astonished::emoji_stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
