    Hello
    I was talking to someone the other day and they say ultimatesponge.com has a sinking pellet that is wheat based and plecos love it.
    Has anyone tried this? The price is right

    I'd offer advise but I can't seem to keep my pleco's alive.... I know mine loved the sinking pellet food but apparently didn't eat enough because they only lasted for a couple of months. Hope you have better luck

    Somehow I don't think plecos eat wheat in the wild, so I think I would pass. There are all kinds of sinking tablets and wafers for sale, mine love the Omega One veggie tablets and any algae wafers I drop in. As a matter of fact, all my fish love these!

    My bristlenose loves the New Life Spectrum Discus pellets. I feed them in a dish to my discus, but the bristlenose always comes out and fills up on them when I feed.

    my plecos, all except the clown one, liked algae wafers. They would eat alot, as in 5 quarter shaped pieces of algae wafer each, and would just sit and eat the wafers
