The King Tiger Pleco
originates from the Rio Xingu in Brazil. The species belongs to the most
popular plecos in the hobby. This fish attains a length of about 15 cm.
Currently we can offer very nice German bred ones (4-5 cm long), which
have a pretty and strongly contrasting black-and-white-pattern.
in all species from the Rio Xingu the water should be a bit warmer than
usual, 28°C is the best temperature. Otherwise the species is
undemanding. These plecos do not feed on algae.
our customers: the animals have code 26480-L 066X-2 (bred ones) and
26480-L 066-3 (wild collected ones) on our stocklist. Please note that
we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
