L257 Tiger Pleco (Pseudolithoxus tigris)

$44.99

A rare and attractively marked pleco found in sandy, fast-moving stretches of the middle to upper Orinoco river in Colombia and Venezuela, the Tiger Pleco is very uncommon in the aquarium trade and hobby. Like its relatives, this pleco prefers clean, well-oxygenated water and will do best with moderate water movement or current. They should be fed a varied diet of sinking prepared foods and fresh veggies in the aquarium.
