Dwarf Plecos - When to Add to Tank

At what point could one add a Dwarf Pleco to their new tank?
Could you add them almost any time and feed them sinking carnivore pellets?

I am going to **assume**.your tank is fully cycled not **just set up**. I wouldn't add dwarf plecos until you have a few hiding spots, preferably wood, but plants will do as long as you have a couple of pieces of wood to gnaw on will do. I'd feed veggie pellets not carnivore pellets

As mother stated, they need wood. What type of pleco is it? There's a lot of dwarfs

What size is your tank? That makes a difference as well. Other tank mates?

Your pleco needs wood as part of it's diet. You'll see health problems down the road if you don't.

All plecos need food , algae wafers, pellets, vegetables etc mine are fed daily at night when the lights are out.
