Just noticed that my pleco doesnt look too good. It has white patches on its back and I dont know what they are.

I just noticed the EXACT same looking thing on a BN pleco I have, I moved him out of a smaller tank because I didnt want him to eat my angels eggs at night and didnt notice it then, its not fuzzy or anything, just that pale spot like yours have - so very curious...

Any ideas for why that might be?

Some fish change colors when stressed, if that is whats happening it makes sense in my case since I just moved mine - hrm... I will take more pics tomorrow and see if it looks different. Here is what mine looked like today...

bizaliz3 - you breed BN plecos too - sorry to ping you again Ever seen this? I am kinda wondering if he just got his head stuck under a rock or if this is something else, especially since the same day I noticed it on mine OP did as well
