What does he usually eat? Would he get along with a 12" pleco?

first, sorry if this gets repeated..I had an issue where I kept getting logged out earlier, anyway..

... he shares a tank with a 10" Red Hook Silver Dollar and a 12" Iridescent Shark. I feed them all Flakes, Shrimp Pellets and Krill. The gar eats the flakes but really likes the Krill and I am not sure if flakes alone would fill him up, but there are times I run out of krill and only give him flakes. If your Pleco hangs out on the bottom most of the time, I think he would get along with it. He has bitten the Iridescent Shark a couple of times, but I think it's because they run into each other a lot in the middle of the tank. I wouldn't put him in a crowded tank, he likes/needs his space.
