Care Guide for RedFin Cactus Pleco L024

RedFin Cactus Pleco L024 is generally peaceful towards other tankmates, but males may be more territorial or aggressive toward other males. This fish's diet includes meaty and vegetable matter. They will appreciate bloodworms, 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.

RedFin Cactus Plecos are not as shy as other members of the genus but they will do best if provided with shaded hiding places, such as caves, driftwood, or rocks, where they can retreat and rest. Water chemistry is not critical as the fish will adapt to a wide range of water conditions, but good filtration is highly recommended.
