The Red Lizard Whiptail Plecostomus has a very long and slender tail. These plecos develop a brilliant red coloration as they mature.

They make a wonderful addition to any freshwater, peaceful community aquarium. There are hundreds of fish in the Loricariidae family, and as a result, you may see a reference to the letter L for the family Loricariidae, followed by a number.

The Red Lizard Whiptail Pleco is referred to as L010a, or L-10a by most hobbyists.

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 Red Lizard Whiptail Pleco.

A 200 litre aquarium or larger is recommended for this species.

Feeding the Red Lizard Whiptail 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 herbivore pellets, and freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex.
