Comments: This is a Premium Pet Fish, and we never see Premium Fish like this in any of the live fish stores or in the online fish stores that we visit.
Premium Pet Fish are more energetic, hardier, and have brighter colors with a beautiful metallic sheen.

Origin: The ancestors of these True Zebra Plecostomus lived in Xingu River in the Eastern Amazon River Basin in Brazil, where it's very abundant, hiding among the rocks.
These Plecos are now being raised for us on a famous fish farm.
Maximum Size: This Pleco can grow to be about 3" long or maybe a very large one at 3.5" long , including its tail.
Behaviors: These Catfish are not aggressive but can be ornery to each other.
They will usually move around pretty actively during the day, but some of them seem to hide during the day and become more active at night.
When there's food to be eaten, they become very active looking for it.
Compatibility: Recommended tank mates include any very mild fish that will not hog all the food.
Zebra Plecostomus also need lots of small partial water changes. Probably a 20% water change at least twice a week is needed.
