Tell me something folks, does your pleco always poop like crazy diarrhea?

I did wc and it poop then i siphon his poop and he poop again... None stop... He ends up creating more waste then cleaning.

That's normal. Plecos are poop machines and it seems like they don't even eat that much...

My longfin albino BNP moves around the tank (220g) so much I don't even notice it.... he's nice and spreads around the wealth for all the plants to enjoy! But yeah, they can poop like nobody else. All that plant material keeps them very regular and cleaned out so you never have to worry about them getting constipated.

Otos are a good choice too. 2 Otos would be good for your tank.

Agreed. I got rid of my pleco for that reason and purchased 3 otos. I think they clean way Better anyways.
