This fish will eat both vegetarian and meaty foods, including algae and blood worms. It is not a finicky eater and will also accept commercially prepared flakes or algae wafers.

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.
