L340 Mega Clown Pleco (Hypancistrus sp. L340)

$39.99

A strikingly patterned, small growing species of Hypancistrus from the warm, acidic water of the Orinoco and its tributaries, the L340 or Mega Clown Pleco is an ideal species for the small to medium community aquarium. Although normally shy at first, they will become more comfortable spending time out in the open over time and especially when food is added to the tank. Like most of their close relatives, the L340 is not a particularly good algae eater and prefers a more protein rich diet than some plecos. Peaceful toward nearly all tankmates, they can be territorial towards other plecos but will typically coexist without problems long as plenty of cover is provided in the aquarium.
