Comments: This is a Premium Pet Fish, and we never see Premium Fish like this in any of the live fish stores or in the online stores that we visit.
Premium Pet Fish are more energetic, hardier, and have brighter colors with a beautiful metallic sheen.
Origin: This Plecostomus was caught in Southern Brazil.
Maximum Size: This Plecostomus can grow to be 4″ long, including their tails.
Sometimes very old Plecos can get even longer.
Behaviors: These Catfish will quarrel with each other but are generally not aggressive.
They will usually move around pretty actively during the day, but some of them seem to hide during the day and become more active at night.
But if there is food to be eaten, they become very active looking for it.
Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include Tetras, Cory Catfish, and other community fish.
