Zebra Pleco, also known by its scientific name as Zebra Peckoltia, belongs to the family Loricariidae. This beautiful pleco lives upriver of the Altamira on the Xingu River in Brazil. This is one of the most beautiful plecos available in the hobby. The Zebra Pleco's body is spectacularly patterned in black and white (as its name suggests). It is considered by many, rightfully so, as the crown jewel of plecos in the hobby.
