    That is a stunning pleco! I don't own any but from what you've said, he's exhibiting typical behavior. I'm sure others experienced with the species will offer up info.

    Can you post pics of your other fish, so we know what you have him with?


    Edited to add: Oh, I see, that's not your particular fish, that's a photo you found, right?
