your pleco has grown to large and is starving. feed it algae wafers or pleco feeding blocks. after the so large they tank no longer makes enough natural agile so 2 things happen they become carnivores or they starve to death. he should stop attacking other fish once he a food source again. they also like many types of veggies.

the large pleco is the most commonly sold pleco and it sad pet stores do not warn they will become large and need there food source replaced at some point. there is smaller breeds like the bristlenose. i had a 19 inch monster myself and had to learn this the hard way after he killed half my fish. after i replaced his food the attacks ended.

I keep a pleco in my koi pond; someone with one of those would be happy to take it.
