Clown Pleco Algae Fish L-103
The Clown Pleco Algae Fish is another beautiful and helpful aquarium fish. Also known as Peckoltia vittata, this fish is originally from South America and has a very peaceful disposition. They may fool you when they’re young as their colors haven’t developed yet, but once they reach maturity their magnificent markings will bloom.
These fish will not damage your plants, and will generally stay small. Perfect for tanks that are 10 gallons or larger, a good rule of thumb is stocking 1 of these fish per 5 gallons of water. Ideal tank mates include: Angels, Discus and other Cichlids, Tetras, Barbs, Danios, Rasboras, Gouramis, Rainbowfish, Livebearers, Loaches, other Plecos, and scavenger Catfish.
