L351 Sachamama Pleco (Panaqolus sp. ‘L351’)

A rare and attractively marked wood eating pleco found in the Peruvian Amazon and some of its tributaries, the ‘Sachamama’ Pleco usually inhabits fast-moving, sediment-rich waters in the wild. This species is sometimes misidentified as the L090 “Papa Lyretail Pleco”, especially as smaller specimens. Like its relatives, this pleco is highly adapted to feeding on submerged wood and should be offered plenty of driftwood and specialty foods for wood eaters in the aquarium.
