Care Information

Lifespan: 10 years


Plenty of hiding spots in the form of caves or driftwood are needed. Drift is an absolute must for the L397 Pleco


Feeding this pleco is super easy as they will eat all types of different foods. L397 Pleco is omnivores which means they will eat both plant-based and high-protein meaty foods. This makes them one of the easiest plecos to feed. They should receive a balanced diet of vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods. They might also eat algae growing in the tank, however, this doesn’t mean Alenquer Plecos are good algae-eating plecos. 

Wood is a stable part of their diet so you will have to have different types of driftwood in your aquarium. These wood-eating fish will need wood to survive in an aquarium. 

They thrive on a plant-based diet, however, they love to eat meaty and high-protein foods as well. For protein, frozen or live foods like bloodworms, tubifex, daphnia, brine shrimp, and other small creatures make great choices.
