Appearance:
As with other Pterygoplichthys, should have more than 10 rays in the dorsal fin. Brownish coloured with gold spots which aren't uniform, spots aren't necessarily circular.

Compatibility:
A pleco with lots of character and not really shy. Not a good companion with similar sized pleco's as can be territorial and especially around food.

Sexing and Breeding:
Sexing most likely by inspecting the genital papillae. Breeding in an aquarium is highly unlikely although they are farm bred.

Diet:
An omnivore that needs veggies and wafers, also enjoys meaty foods like prawns sometimes.

Water parameters:
Not too fussy, will suit most water conditions. Temp should be between 25c and 28c. Needs a large aquarium due to the size it reaches as an adult. Cover should also be provided, even though not really a shy pleco, likes to have somewhere to retreat away from the open.

Max Size:
Almost 1 foot

Bred by:
