Not familiar with this pleco, but my guess is he probably gets alot more active at night...some plecos just stay in one or two spots most of the day when the light is bright. Then when the lights go off, they get active. Have you ever watched him in dim light or at night?

I have no idea what a flash knife pleco is.

At any rate, there are over 500 types of plecos, and most of them are mostly nocturnal or fairly deep in the river species, so they are not usually out in the open. They like to hide by nature.

Common plecos are fairly active, as are bushynose.
With the Hyancistrus complex which are my favorites, the Zebra nearly always hides, while the L66 tiger is most active of the group.

So the fact that you even see your pleco means he is fairly active for a pleco.
