    is it okay for plecos to chew on silicone?

    In my 150 gallon tank My pleco enjoys chewing on pretty much anything rubbery, such as the air tube on the bubbler and, mainly the silicone. Just wondering if it's okay for him to do that (in case he eats any of it), and if it's okay for the tank.
