Plecos doing strange things...


My plecostomus is sitting at the top of my tank just floating there. He's not dead. Still seems to be very lively. I have a planted tank with added co2. All water parameters are perfect. Has anyone seen this before? Or does this seem odd like he's gonna die

Is your CO2 too high? He might be trying to get more O2

My 'ol common did this from time to time. If otherwise he is healthy, acting normal, ect, I wouldn't worry. Just keep an eye out for anything that might suddenly change.
