I bought a 5gal tank for my two year old and we got some platys, tetras and a pleco. Well my husband wanted a Fiddler so we added one (we used to have a 55gal and it worked) Approx. two weeks after having it in there I found the Pleco dead with it's face ripped off. I know it was the crab because it was still holding on to the pleco. What I want to know is, did the crab kill the pleco?? Or was it just cleaning up a dead fish?? (btw - we see no reason for the pleco to have died). Thanks
