Flash Pleco L204 Care Guide


Flash Pleco
(Panaque sp.)

Common names:
Flash pleco, L204

Size: 13cm

pH: 6.6 – 8.6

Tempº: 24ºC - 30ºC

Tank region: Bottom layer

Origin: Peru

Gender: The males start to grow odontodes on their backs when they reach about 9-10cm.

Notes: These fish are rapidly emerging as one of the most popular plecos around. Like all plecos, they love caves to hide in – and you should feed them on vegetables along with spirulina wafers and such. These fish can be prone to fin nipping – as their exotic tail extensions are somewhat vulnerable. Ideal tank mates would include fish from the livebearer family, like platys and guppys.

They can get a little territorial as they mature.
