The Yellow Prince Tiger Plecostomus comes from the rivers and tributaries of South America.

The main colour is yellow with dark brown spots and stripes covering the entire body and fins. The eyes are striped to follow the markings on the head.

Yellow Prince Tiger 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 Yellow Prince Tiger Plecostomus.

A recommended minimum tank of 100 litres should be provided to house this fish. The Yellow Prince Tiger Plecostomus has not been bred in an aquarium setting and little is known about their breeding habits.

Feeding the Yellow Prince Tiger Plecostomus is not difficult due to the fact that it is not a picky eater.

Feeding off the bottom of the tank, 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.
