Does anyone else have a BN plec they never see? Like maybe once in a blue moon?

Typical behavior for BN plecos. They are nocturnal.

When I turn my light on or walk up to the tank at night, my BN scurries up and hides behind the filter.

There are several hundred species of plecos.
There are a large handful referred to as BN. Some are shyer than others. For some, warmer water makes them more comfortable.

Are there other fish in the tank that might be intimidating the BN?
If there are more caves, he/they might be more apt to move around the tank.
Good luck.

I know where my BN hangs out...so I can see him to check up on him...but if he sees me coming he high-tails it! :hmm3grin2orange:
