I have a 5" chocolate cichlid in a tank with a 6" sailfin pleco, hes rather timid and I havent been seeing him eat. I have read that nightcrawlers would work, but I have yet to see him eat anything...I think the pleco is just cleaning up the dead nightcrawlers at night. I have not tried crickets yet...I read that those would work too. Also, what would be some good tank mates for chocolates?
