Moving soon and will be setting up a new tank for my Pacu and Pleco.

Is pool filter sand ok for my pleco? He's 10 years old and about 8" long. My pacu and pleco will be the only ones in the tank. Maybe a parrot fish since they get along great.

The tank he's been in for many years has coated rocks from LPS and he likes to dig around in them for food.

I think I would let him have his own tank altho with the pleco you mentioned. Just my 2 cents.

You mean putting the pacu in the tank alone or just leaving out the parrot?
