My BN is loads healthier! I’m not sure it’s 100% gone, and I’m not sure any treatment actually helped but he’s still with us and out of his hospital tank, chomping on anything I give him!

Here he is enjoying some yellow pepper today! 😁

Nice to hear this !
I haven't noticed before, I think your BN pleco is a female considering its small and subdued bristles sprouting out around its mouth.

Im still more convinced he is a he... a zoom in on one of his photos shows LOADS of bristles on his nose as well as the smaller mouth sprouts. For this reason only, I believe he is male 🤷

Head bristles are too large to be female's.

Do you blanch vegetables before you give him ?

Did you try lettuce (blanched 1 min) ? They usually like it.

Haven’t tried it yet, usually opt for Courgette, Peppers, strawberries, sliced grapes and occasionally Cucumber.

Ill give it a go as I often have a variety of “fancy” lettuces in the fridge as my spoiled Guinea Pigs love it!

Glad to hear he is doing better!

Also try cauliflower, broccoli, and green beans, that have been blanched or steamed
