help! my neighbor's pleco is going berserkers
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?

I don't think so
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.60. Platies, Swordtails
