This Pleco is not difficult to maintain under the correct conditions. We strongly recommend keeping it in a tank designed to simulate a flowing stream with a substrate of variably-sized rocks that might include sand, fine gravel, and some river stones. Your tank should be further furnished with driftwood branches, terracotta pots, etc, arranged to form a network of nooks, crannies, and shady spots, thus providing broken lines of sight.
