Koi & Plecostomas

I have a 2 1/2 inch long Koi and a Plecostomus in a 10 gallon aquarium. Is there any issue with the algae wafers that I feed the Plecostomus and the Koi? What should I be feeding the Koi? He's eating gold fish flakes right now.

There should be no issue with the algae wafers that you are feeding your Plecostomus, they are not harmful to Koi. You should probably switch from goldfish flakes to a small pellet Koi Food. Goldfish food is meant for goldfish, so it may be missing some important nutrients that are good for Koi. Make sure that you do not overload your filter by feeding your fish too much.
