The Gold Spotted Plecostomus comes from the rivers and tributaries of South America. The main body color is Black with a cream colored belly and small whitish yellow spots covering the body. This dwarf Plecostomus is ideal for any community tank.

Planted tanks with hearty, fast-growing plants, high aeration and water movement make for a healthy environment. Rocks and driftwood help to accent a natural habitat and provide hiding spaces to reduce stress for the Angelicus Pleco. A recommended minimum tank of 30 gallons should be provided to house this fish.

Feeding the Gold Spotted Plecostomus is not difficult due to the fact that it is not a picky eater. Feeding off the bottom of the aquarium, it gets most of its nutrition from left over food and algae. If there is no algae or left over food present, supplement with high quality flake food, sinking carnivore pellets, and freeze-dried bloodworms, and tubifex.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1-3/4" to 2-1/4"
