My pleco ate all the algae in the tank in a matter of days and i don't want him to starve so I was planning on buying some algae wafers but all the store had was Wardley Algae discs. Are they the same thing? and how many and how often should i feed the pleco?

That's what I feed my plecs and I also feed them wardley's shrimp pellets. With the wafers the plecs don't always eat them at first, sometimes they don't recognize it as a food source and whatnot.

Just drop on down in the tank, I usually do it at night after I turn the tanks lights out. I give my plecs on a day, but you can do it less often. Sometimes soaking them in garlic helps entice them if they aren't eating it. And remove any that doesn't get eaten

It is also good to try veggies, zucchinis, cucumbers, squash, spinach, try offering different foods and see if you get any results.
