My adult Pterygoplichthys punctatus is giving me nightmares, constantly spooking and swimming into the walls of the tank.

The large pleco caught in the jungle.

This is a very hardyfish! I emptied the bag with all of the fish in it into a bucket. From there I netted out all of the fish and put them into the various tanks. Three hours later I remembered this fish and I could not find it. Just to make sure, I checked the bag and this fish was still in it! Three hours in less then a 1/4 cup of water? He has recovered dompletely and is very active.
