Lost my pleco
 
I placed a med pleco in one of my tanks. 14 gal. There are about 6 julii cats. Very small and one glow fish. Decorative. 2-3 days later the med pleco had been chewed beyond recognition and I am trying to figure out how. Was it the Julii cats? They are strong in numbers, but very small.
Any ideas?
Aloha,
Scott

Most likely the pleco died and the Cory cats scavenged the corpse. A 14 gallon tank is too small for any species of pleco.

I completely agree...... sorry for your loss.

I highly advise researching species PRIOR to placing them in your tank. It makes for less heartbreak.
