My Goldfish Kills Pleco (And is now in over his head)



My 9 inch goldfish, Hoover, has it in for pleco's. So far he has killed 3. Realizing that for my 29 gallon tank an algae feeder is important I recently bought an 8 inch pleco. Now it seems I have a new problem. This pleco is big enough to fight back, and mean it. Hoover is all beat up. He's got a bruise on his belly, and is missing a few scales.

Will my goldfish learn not to tangle with my pleco? Will they stop fighting, or am I going to have to release my Goldfish in my dad's fishpond?

If I do have to release him in my dad's fishpond, will he be okay going from a well kept tank, to a mucky pond?

Please help,
Kuroneko

Sorry I can't help with the rest of the questions, but if you have to put him in the pond, he'll be fine. Goldfish do great in ponds.

If anything he should be happier with more room to swim.

Thanks a bunch, it's a huge weight off my mind. I was so scared he would get clogged and die.
