    yep, sucker fish love to suck!

    When you aren't around he probably swims to the middle of the tank and does a little dance...

    I was going to be smart and I bought a nifty little veggie clip and I put it in one of my plecs favorite sucking spots so he might get a big of veg... but that did not work. I have had a hard time feeding my guys veggies, they love shrimp pellets though and everytime I feed the pellets they stop their sucking and join in with the corys to chow down!

    My pleco is sucking on the inside of my jug/hiding place all the time! It seems to be his favourite place to be, nice, dark and secluded.

    He also loves to periodically dance around the tank, but not in a darting or flashing fashion!
