I feed northfin veggie 2mm to my large tank and I've noticed it being passed right through into some of my pleco poop not digested.

 

that is to say im finding full not broken down pellets of food in the poop of some of my plecos

 

anyone else have this issue with their plecos and this food? something I should be concerned about?

thanks

Mike

Don’t use that food myself. Did it just start happening and you’ve feed NF for awhile??? Or did you just start feeding it?

I've used a few bags and fed to my geos and some plecos, didn't have any issues with it. Not sure how concerned you should be, that does seem pretty strange

I have never really exam their waste. How does the fish look? Losing weight? If so treat it with Metro....my 2 cents :).

Logic says put it on the back burner for awhile and use a variety of other food. It could be an old bag and maybe the NF is just old???
