Care Information

Lifespan: Up to 10 years

Habitat: The Snowball Pleco is primarily nocturnal, but will often become active during daytime hours once established in an aquarium with plenty of driftwood, rockwork, and other hiding places.

Diet: This pleco is considered carnivorous. They will readily accept bloodworms and brine shrimp. Quality pellets that contain more meaty ingredients such as silkworm are also a particularly good food for them that they enjoy.

Temperament: As with all these catfish, hiding places must be provided as they will be more active in the evening than the daytime. The L201 snowball pleco may become territorial with their own species as they mature.
