The greatest size in the wild can reach 60cm, however the tiny size is always the favored choice in the aquarium due to its specific usefulness, both as a "prince" that eats nasty algae and as a "look" for the Owner, keeping the water clean while also generating a distinct image for the Aquarium. Plecos fish are important because they are resilient and can survive in a wide range of water conditions, as well as live happily and coexist with other fish.

Pleco is a tropical South American fish with a lifespan of 10-15 years. A pleasant, peaceful Pleco swimming at the bottom of your aquarium will become a long-term "friend" in your aquarium.


Pleco normally live on the bottom of the aquarium, so if you decorate it with colored stones or an object, make sure it is safe and not sharp to avoid injuring Pleco while swimming.
You should also be aware that the temperature in the lake runs from 25 to 28 degrees, but if you are too busy or your room heats up to around 29-30 degrees, Pleco will still thrive and survive. Because Pleco requires a lot of oxygen, your aquarium should minimize the usage of plastic items and medicines for other fish.

Tip for you a quick solution:

  • Blow air into the tank or add air bubbles.

  • Plant extra ornamental plants on the aquarium's bottom to help provide more oxygen and a natural environment outside.
