L253 Black Royal Goldie Pleco (Scobinancistrus sp. L253)

$199.99

A rarely seen and stunningly marked variant of the more well known Goldie Pleco, the L253 Black Royal Goldie is found in the Rio Iriri, a tributary of the Xingu in Brazil. Like its cousin the L014 Goldie Pleco, this species is peaceful and will thrive in most community aquariums as long as they are given sufficient space. In nature, they are a scavenger, but will typically do best when provided protein rich foods like frozen bloodworms, shrimp, or sinking carnivore diets. They require excellent water quality and will do best with regular large water changes and warm, well-oxygenated water in the aquarium.
