this is very easy to keep! it is also safe for plants and is not very aggressive. great for tanks with delicate plants such as madagascar laceplant and rotala macrandra

I have never owned a Pleco but I have had my eye on this fish for years, I consider this to be the most beautiful Pleco and it is a little smaller than most at 5 inches or so.
