Overeating

I need advice on how to keep my lionhead from eating all of my pleco's algae wafers. He's getting really chubby and my pleco is not happy.   Huh

You can try to trick it by moving your fingers on one corner of the aquarium like you trying to feed it and then feed the other fish on the opposite side. By the time it realizes there is no food,  the pleco should have had enough time to eat his food.  Not sure if this will work but it's worth a try.

Thanks for the suggestion! The only problem is that my pleco likes to eat in private and usually waits until everyone has left the room. If he would just eat when I fed him, this idea would work great!  Roll Eyes
