The Butterfly Pleco, as it's called, is one of the most striking Plecos around. It's easily confused with L168 from the Orinoco, although not as striking as their cousin the L168 from Rio Negro, they are still beautiful nonetheless. Fairly easy to keep, small size, a decent algae eater and good looks make it a perfect aquarium fish.
Recommended Tank Parameters:
Minimum Tank Size: 90l
Habitat: This species needs well-oxygenated water, preferably with a high degree of movement. Provide lots of cover in the form of driftwood roots and branches, and if you wish, smooth rocks and plants. If kept in a more general setup, it won’t thrive in cool or poorly oxygenated water.
Diet: Omnivorous with leaning more towards veggies. Most sinking bottom dwellers pellets such as algae wafers, spirulina wafers. They also enjoy a variety of veggies such as green beans, zucchini, and cucumber.
Temperament: Works great with any fish that requires the same water parameters.
