I've had my pleco for a few weeks. Everything's been great, s/he's warming up to the new place and doesn't scramble to hide whenever I come around. A week ago I noticed that there are small white things sticking to the walls of the aquarium now. Am I doing something wrong...or not doing something right? I have two clown loaches in a different tank and I've never seen these white things before on the walls of their tank. Feedback is appreciated, thanks. ??? :-\ just playing with those smileys...lol okay bye and thanks again

If the white things look like little worms and they are moving, it's probably planaria and they are harmless. They usually show up when there is excess food in the tank or the water quality is not up to par. I get them sometimes in my 100 gal. tank where I have 2 oscars, 1 jack dempsey and a very large pleco. Plecos are big poopers and can mess up your water quickly.
