Clown Pleco

Clown Pleco, also known by its scientific name as Panaque Maccus, is a very popular catfish because of its beautiful coloration and pattern. This bottom feeder is found in Venezuela and Colombia. This pleco's body is largely dark brown to black with a contrasting pattern of light/white stripes on its body.

Care Guide for Clown Pleco

Clown Pleco is peaceful towards other tankmates, but males may be more territorial or aggressive toward other males. This fish eats wood and other foods and plant-like material. Clown Pleco likes to chew on something and they will appreciate driftwood, squash, cucumber, and other vegetables if made available to them. Alternatively, they should be fed high-quality commercially prepared fish foods like pellets, flakes, or wafers

Max Size:   4 - 5 inches
Water:   73 - 82 F; pH 6.5 - 7.5

Plecos do not require large aquariums but will appreciate shelter/hiding places such as caves, driftwood, or rocks. Water chemistry is not critical and the fish will adapt to a wide range of water conditions.
