The Starry Night Pleco comes from the rivers and tributaries of South America.

The main colour is black with small white spots covering the entire body, resembling stars. The dorsal fin and tail are outlined in white, and the nose and mouth area have long bristles.

Starry Night 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 Starry Night Pleco.

A recommended minimum tank of 100 litres should be provided to house this fish. The Starry Night Pleco has not been bred in an aquarium and little is known about their breeding habits.

Feeding the Starry Night 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 left over food present, supplement with high quality flake food, sinking carnivore pellets, freeze-dried bloodworms, and tubifex.
