One of the largest species of Panaque, reaching 20″ or more as an adult, the Lyretail Titanic Pleco is found throughout much of the middle Amazon, where it is found in fast-moving, sediment-rich waters. Juvenile fish display an attractive pattern of spots and squiggles which will fade slightly as they approach adult size. This species is often misidentified as the L090 “Papa Lyretail Pleco”, especially as smaller specimens. Like its relatives, this pleco is highly adapted to feeding on submerged wood and should be offered plenty of driftwood and specialty foods for wood eaters in the aquarium.
