I've noticed them hanging out around mine, then the plecos make a huge dust storm to shoo them off.
But I agree, if the plecos can munch on wood then little veggie matter is nothin.

not really sure like i said i am new he is striped with a few spots..and little horn things on his nose?? he is smaller then my betta and chases him off bc my betta is nosy and likes to pick at everything I put in the tank. i put some driftwood in the 20g that should be done cycling so hopefully that will help when i switch them to that tank...
