Orange Seam Xingu Pleco L081  REGULAR

Out of stock

The name "plecostomus" means "folded mouth"  Pleco is a common name for fish from the familyLoricariidae but has extended  to the family Hypostomus plecostomus known as a sucker fish

Many types of suckermouth armoured catfishes remain undescribed. As a result, they are given a common name and an L-number designation until a new scientific name is agreed upon.

They are extremely popular in aquariums for their ability to clean tanks by eating algae growth and dead fish.

Plecos are omnivorous, but in the wild feed nocturnally mostly on plant material. During the day, their unusual omega irises block a lot of light out of their eyes, but they are usually open at night. They can roll their eyes within their sockets, giving the appearance of winking. Plecos are usually skittish and quickly hide whenever they sense danger.
