Any possible way to get a pic?

What are the water parameters?

Ammonia, Nitrite, NitrAte?

Clean, fresh water is #1 for good fish health.

Do a water change! 25% Then another until your water quality is great.

Is your tank cycled, have a big beneficial bacteria colony in your filter pad/ filter media?

If you need more information about this and fish keeping tools check the link in my signature for a very useful Aquarium Advice article.

Follow up with water quality.

Also Plecos need DW to rasp/ eat for fiber, digestion. Pepper may need some real DW if you don't already have it.
