L200 Green Phantom Pleco
The L200 Green Phantom Pleco is a beautifully marked Loricariid found in fast-moving, rocky areas of the Orinoco and Venturi Rivers in Colombia and Venezuela.
With their light green body colouration and distinctive yellow spots, this pleco makes a colourful and unique addition to most medium to large aquariums. An omnivore, they will graze on algae but will also require a varied diet of sinking prepared foods, gel foods, and fresh vegetables like zucchini and squash.
In the aquarium, they will do best in moderately soft, warm, well-oxygenated water with plenty of hiding places and moderate to strong current. This species requires excellent water quality to thrive so large frequent water changes should be considered necessary.
Feeding: The Adonis plecs are omnivores and should be fed a varied diet made up of Pellets, Vegetable matter and live or frozen food.
