Hi y'all, any help or advice would be appreciated, I bought my neighbor a pleco a couple years ago (Mr. T) he's about 9" long now and just in the last week he has started thrashing at the bottom, moving all the gravel into a pile and even moved one of the artificial plants! His belly also changes from dark with spots to grayish-white. I thought he was dead at one point, was lying on his side at the bottom, but he's still thrashing gravel and re-arranging the tank- anyone ever had this happen?

Tank too small?

It's a 60 gallon tank, I think.

maybe he's going through a phase. mine has gone through some weird ones: random thrashing, random jumping out of the water so high he hits the canopy, etc... make sure he feeds him some veggis like zucchini and pleco should be ok.
