sand is not an issue. I've kept sand with my pleco and he might eat it but, it will come out the other end. As long as he is pooing, then he is eating.

You can't force him to eat wafers. My pleco quit eating algae wafers and started eating more protein rich cichlid pellets as he got older.

Hi Rocksor

I used aquarium sand before this awful white salica and had no probs

I think the white sand was to fine

I know I can't physically make him eat so If you or anyone can tell me what other foods to try

I've ordered some shrimp wafers and will try him with wafers soaked Garlic Guard

Thanx for the reply xx

Any other fish in there? Getting some uneaten cichlid food from the bottom?


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Mine eats zucchini that i add shrimp pellets into (four or five pellets per slice of zucchini). Googles that up in a short time. He will also eat carrots, usually after it has sat in the water for a day or so. He also ate a big piece of pear the other day. I always add pellets of some kind into the flesh of the fruit or veg as they need their protein.
