L128 BLUE PHANTOM PLECO (Hemiancistrus sp. L128) 1.5"

Regular price $44.99

We have 10 left in stock.

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The fish is omnivorous and easy to feed. Although and effective algae eater, it should be given a varied diet of prepared foods.

Lots of vertical stonework and rounded boulders. Bogwood and plants are not necessary. Water current should be at its strongest over cracks and crevices in the rocks where the fish will live.

Not quite as hardy as L200 and appears to take slightly more effort on the part of the aquarist to acclimatize. It will live in calmer water should you wish to keep this fish in a medium sized community setup.

This fish is a good pleco for a community tank despite it's natural habitat in rapids as it will adapt to less hectic water conditions. If you do want to try faster water, Semaprochilodus characins and silver dollars of various types are a good choice for mid-water companions.
