Pleco

Do plecos eat your plants? Mine goes all over the leaves but it appears that he "grazes" them as they are very green and have no algae... Then he continues this "grazing" on all my sides and wood

It's probably just microscopic film algae growing on the plants that he's eating.

Probably just looking for food and driftwood is actually a good part of a pleco's diet.

I always have mine an algae tablet just to make sure he got enough to eat. Corydoras like them too.

My dude loves to eat the blood worms and pellets I toss in. He acts like a bottom feeder
