Fighting plecos

Plecos are not often known for their aggression, but the fact is, males will sometimes fight and not just for show. Today, I came home to find the beta male with his tail and a large number of scales missing.

The two males really do have more than enough territory space, with a 150 cm of bottom space to chose from, so I imagine they decided to go for the same cave, out of the three which are available. No sign of infection, but treating with eSHa 2000, just in case.
