The Jumbo Royal Broken Line Pleco Algae Fish is not only stunning, but also very easy to care for if you abide by a few tips. First, do not treat the water with medications, or at least a very minimal amount. Also, these fish need proper diet care, or else risk putting this fish in danger of intestinal disease. As a slow growing fish, they are sensitive to both sudden changes in water chemistry and can also suffer easily from malnutrition. Always feed them a diet of high-fiber foods and algae. Feeding them New Life Spectrum Wafers and supplement with frozen or fresh spinach leaf, will keep them strong. They also have a great disposition.
