L260 Queen Arabesque Pleco (Hypancistrus sp. ‘L260’)


With their intricate black and white pattern, the L260 Queen Arabesque Pleco is one of the most striking of the Hypancistrus and has been popular in the hobby for decades. These fish originate in the clear waters of the Rio Tapajos in Brazil, where they inhabit rocky, fast-moving shallows. In the aquarium, they are hardy and will feed on a variety of sinking foods but should be given plenty of protein rich foods like Repashy’s insectivore gel diets.
