I've noticed that my pleco hasn't been cleaning the tank like he use to.
He seems lethargic. He is 5 years old and was a good cleaner.
I just wonder if he is on his way out.

Please :help:

what kind of pleco? do you feed him anything else? Some plecos grow tired of algae if there is other matter to eat. Some plecos are just not into algae at all. Some like to eat wood.

Welcome to the Fabulous AC!
What kind of pleco is it?
What is your water change schedule like?
What other fish are in the tank?

Give him fruits and veggies! Best way to rile up a sleeping pleco!

mine is three and also does not goin for the algae thing much any more. However, I give a variety of veggies to my fish and I have a nice big piece of wood in there that he just loves attaching himself to...and which he is slowly but surely gnawing away at...
