The L075 Para Pleco or Leopard Pleco is a beautifully patterned pleco found in fast-flowing, rocky waters throughout the Orinoco and Amazon basins. As a medium-growing and colorful pleco, it is a good addition to a medium to the large aquarium and is generally peaceful towards tank mates.
The L075 will usually coexist with other plecos as long as ample hiding places and the cover is provided. An omnivore should be fed a varied diet of both algae/vegetable-based and protein-rich foods.
