The L075 Para Pleco or Leopard Pleco is a beautifully patterned pleco found in fast-flowing, rocky waters throughout the Orinoco and Amazon basins. As a medium growing and colorful pleco, it is a good addition for a medium to large aquarium and is generally peaceful towards tankmates. The L075 will usually coexist with other plecos as long as ample hiding places and cover is provided. An omnivore, they should be fed a varied diet of both algae/vegetable based and protein-rich foods.
