A beautifully marked “tiger” pleco of the genus Panaqolus, the L398 was only recently described scientifically as P. tankei. Originating from the clear, fast-moving waters of the lower Xingu, L398 tends to be found in and around sunken trees and large patches of driftwood in the wild. Like its close relatives, it is a wood eater (xylivore) and in the aquarium should be provided with ample driftwood as well as other nutritious sinking foods like Repashy’s xylivore formula gel diet.
