That's a new one. I've never heard my plecos make noise, but I know my loaches do.

I have heard my Dwarf Bristlenose Plecos make a kind of croaking sound, especially when I have had to prod them out of there hiding places in there piece of driftwood, when I want to take it out of the tank.

Well catfish croak when they are out of the water, and he had just banged his head.

My pleco will make suck-click noises when I've netted him. Heh heh I guess it's his way of letting me know, "I do not like this one bit, now put me back before I'm forced to Sluuuurrrrrrrrp-ClicK you to death." LOL gotta love my Pleco

I just recently heard my loach sort of click when he is sticking his head out of the water to clean the side of the tank. He's got issues.
