Appearance: Disputed, as some say this is an L097

Compatibility: A relatively peaceful species, however needs enough room to stake out a territory, which will however be defended fiercely if intruded by other fish. Already at an early age, can be quite aggressive towards it's own kind or similar looking plecos, especially if cramped for space and competing with other bottom dwellers.

Sexing and Breeding: Not known so far, presume as most Plecos a cave or log spawner

Diet: This is a carnivorous plec. One glance at its mouth illustrates this well. Instead of the true sucker mouth, it has a mouth that is more suitable for grasping and holding food items. All this means that its diet should primarily be made up of meaty foods, such as shrimp, krill, mussels, blood worms, mosquito larvae and fish meats ( fillets). However once acclimatized would also accept pellet food and sometimes even fresh vegetables such as zuchinni, potatoe ,cucumber, etc

Water parameters: Temp 25-29C PH 5.5-7.5, dimmed lights and a good amount of hiding places. This fish requires a lot of personal space due to its aggressive territorial behaviour. Additional oxygen is prefered and a current through the tank. Due to high protein diet a good filtration system is needed.

Max Size: approx 20cm ( 7.87" )

Bred by: no reports received so far from PP members
