New albino pleco

I have a very small albino pleco(smaller than 2") that I "rescued" from a big box pet store. There is a slice of blanched zucchini on the bottom of the tank and I also feed algae wafers. I know they eat at night, but all he seems to do is hang on the side and there isn't much algae on the tank due to all the plants in the tank. The algae can't compete. Do you think he is eating? I can't tell that he has touched the zucchini. Am new to plecos so don't know their habits. Thanks!

Re: New albino pleco

Mine was a tiny little thing too. I just waited for the poo. The good thing about the albinos is you can actually see inside them. A bottom sinking wafer made for catfish is good, and they will go after some frozen bloodworms occasionally. They are very shy at that age. I think it also depends on whether you have a peaceful fish tank, semi-agressive, or aggressive.
