My friend has a puffer fish, and those fish's eyes move around like crazy. I was wondering if plecos can move their eyes as well. I have never seen mine do it, but my room mate claims he saw him move his eyes. I don't know if I believe him (blush) Since their vision is not very good, I would assume that they can not.

Well, I don't know for all pleco, but mine (a peckoltia) do it... Not always, but from time to time, I see his eye moving.

So, even if your room mate is trying to make a joke, there's a big chance that's possible.

Corydoras can do it also.
