Specifications

Overview

The Tiger Pleco comes from the Amazon Basin of South America. It gets its name from the striped pattern it has on its body.

Constant temperature and pH levels will help maintain this peaceful Plecostomus health.

Tiger Plecos make good additions to any community aquarium. Planted aquariums with high aeration and water movement make for a healthy environment.

Rocks and driftwood help to accent a natural habitat and provide hiding spaces to reduce stress for the Tiger Pleco.

A 100 litre aquarium or larger is recommended for this species. Breeding in an aquarium setting has not been successful yet, however, different methods are being used in the industry.

The Tiger Plecostomus is an egg-layer, that tends to use plants and rocks as an anchor. Feeding the Tiger Pleco is not difficult due to the fact that it is not a picky eater.

Feeding off the bottom of the aquarium, it gets most of its nutrition from leftover food and algae.

If there is no algae or leftover food present, supplement with high quality flake food, sinking carnivore pellets, freeze-dried bloodworms, and tubifex.
