    A unique, heavily armored pleco from the Tocantins river basin in Eastern Brazil, the L056 or Chubby Pleco gets its name from its unusually wide, flattened body shape. In the wild, they are found in areas of moderate to fast water movement and typically live in rocky areas. They are a hardy and undemanding pleco in the aquarium but should be offered plenty of cover and excellent water quality should be maintained through frequent large water changes. An omnivore, they will accept most sinking foods and fresh veggies but be sure to offer some protein rich options like Repashy gel diet or Fluval Bug Bites Pleco Formula regularly.
