Is there enough for them to eat? Once the lights go out are they getting harassed?

If you have any left. Next time you turn the lights off watch for a while. Pleco's do get picked on when the lights go out a lot of the time. What kind of Pleco's are they?

I had a 3" german red peacock male that I put in my 75 gallon tank with about 100 ABN pleco's in it. I caught him grabbing the fin of a pleco and shake him really hard. I removed the cichlid from the tank, but I had several die over the next week that had been abused by him.

For a tank your size you might want to get as big a pleco as you can find. I see 10"-14" common plecos in my lfs's every once in a while. People break down their tanks and usually the stores will take the monsters from them.
