The Blue Phantom Plecostomus originates from the rapids of the Rio Orinoco in Venezuela and even further downstream. The Pleco’s broad flat head and body shape helps it navigate (or stay put) in very strong currents with minimal effort. With its overall muted blue coloration and lighter colored polka dots, this visually alluring algae eater makes a great choice for freshwater hobbyists in search of unusual aquarium inhabitants.
