$79.99$89.99

One of several strikingly marked black and white Hypancistrusspecies from the Rio Xingu in Brazil, the L333 or Yellow King Tiger Pleco inhabits rocky areas of warm, fast-moving water. In the aquarium, they need excellent water quality and do best when provided lots of cover in the form of caves or driftwood. A carnivore, they should be fed protein rich foods like frozen bloodworms, carnivore pellets, or gel diets. Like most plecos from this region, they will do best at higher temperatures (80-85F) and plenty of water movement.
