Feeding The fish is omnivorous and easy to feed. Although and effective algae eater, it should be given a varied diet of prepared foods.
Decoration
Lots of vertical stonework and rounded boulders. Bogwood and plants are not necessary. Water current should be at its strongest over cracks and crevices in the rocks where the fish will live.
Compatibility Not quite as hardy as L200 and appears to take slightly more effort on the part of the aquarist to acclimatize. It will live in calmer water should you wish to keep this fish in a medium sized community setup.
Suggested Tankmates This fish is a good pleco for a community tank despite it's natural habitat in rapids as it will adapt to less hectic water conditions. If you do want to try faster water, Semaprochilodus characins and silver dollars of various types are a good choice for mid-water companions.
Breeding Have been spawned in aquarium. Male guards eggs in similar way to most other Hypostominae subfamily fishes.

 


Q: I just completed my order, what's next?
A: Before shipment, we quarantine all fish for at least 24-48 hours. During this period, we closely monitor the fish to make sure they are healthy. We also do not feed them during this time in order to 'clean out' their digestive system and limit their ability to soil the water.  This helps reduce the amount of waste in the bag and will keep the water clean.

Q: When can I expect my order to be ship?
