Oscar attacking Rhino Pleco??

300 gallon tank
Albino oscar
Jack Dempsey
5 silver dollars
Black ghost knife
Gold severum
Green severum
Blood parrot
Rhino Pleco

Tank has been running since beginning of March. 55 gallon sump. Everybody has been fine until today. 5-6 inch albino started attacking the 8-9 inch pleco. He keeps biting him and I don't know why and don't know what to do! Any ideas?

Besides rehoming either fish, I'd say giving the pleco a few good hideouts that only it can get into to get away from the oscar would be a good idea if there isn't one in the tank already. As long as you do that, hopefully your pleco will be smart enough to go in there when the Oscar bothers him too much. Not much else you can do besides selling 1 of them or putting 1 in a different tank
