The Imperial Ranger would like some cover provided as it doesn’t always like to be in the open. Lots of larger leafy plants, wood and rocks will help keep this shy pleco comfortable. Sand can be problematic as this pleco is likely to unintentionally stir it up which can be damaging for filters. Typical aquarium gravel or larger stone is best, and offering driftwood for them to chew on will keep this pleco happy.
