My koi keeps grabbing all the sinking pellets i put in for my snowball pleco. Any suggestions on how to feed my hungry pleco?

Try at night after lights out. The pleco should be active then.

Thats the only time I get a chance to get food to the pleco.
I wait till the lights have been out for close to an hour and drop in its food.
If I do it during the day the other fish take it before it hits the tank floor.

stop mixing cold and hot water fish, problem solved ;)

i personally have to ward my GT away from my eel at dinner time so MR. eel gets enough to eat, this may work for you and your koi?
