The Pario-Ancistrus Pleco comes from the rivers and tributaries of South America.

The body is black to dark brown and has numerous, closely-spaced white spots covering the entire body and fins. Pario-Ancistrus Plecos make good additions to any community aquarium.

Planted aquariums with hearty, fast-growing plants, 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 Pario-Ancistrus Pleco.

A recommended minimum tank of 250 litres should be provided to house this fish. The breeding habits of the Pario-Ancistrus Pleco are unknown.

Feeding the Pario-Ancistrus 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.
