True about protein not being good for many plecos, but one meal isnt going to kill them, like the OP and the recent bumper of this thread imply.I have to say high protein is bad for many plecos.
Look for low protein wafers. Strangely enough, my fish enjoy a cheap local brand more than the Hikari stuff.
My cory's won't even eat the Hikari wafers.
True, it shouldn't. I'm sure they will eat the odd bit of dead fish or bird in the wild.
How old is the food?
