The L066 Xingu King Tiger Pleco is a member of the Loricariidae family of South American suckermouth catfishes. This smaller size makes for a much more manageable (and less messy) pleco that can thrive permanently in a well maintained aquarium as small as 40 gallons. They grow to a maximum of 6.3 inches.
Not difficult to maintain under the correct conditions, we strongly recommend keeping it in a tank designed to simulate a flowing stream with a substrate of variably sized rocks, sand, fine gravel and some water-worn boulders.
The L066 are Peaceful towards tank mates, but may pose a threat to fry. Will be mildly territorial towards other Plecos but as long as there's enough caves they should be fine.
This is a carnivorous pleco, feed with sinking wafers and pellets, shrimp, bloodworm, brine shrimp and mussel.
