    My BN pleco has an odd tail. I don't think it's a disease because it's been like this since I got him a few months ago. What I am wondering is if it is deformed or is this normal? He is about 3in long.

    I haven't noticed any difference in his tail. I think it's always been like that. Nobody seems to bother him. I do have a black molly who is kind of a pain, but it doesn't ever seem to go around my pleco.

    Do you think the black kuhli loaches are munchin on him when the lights go out?

    I feed him algea wafers and shrimp pellets every few nights. He usually doesn't eat much of the algea wafers though.
