Royal plecos are somewhat rare plecos that are highly sought after by catfish enthusiasts. Unlike many of the plecos seen for sale, royal plecos have bold colors and patterns that make them stand out in any tank.
This green pleco has a great home for itself. It has peaceful tankmates such as Congo tetras, rainbowfish, and roseline barbs. It has driftwood to feed on and hiding places to dart into. You can also see that there is substantial current in the aquarium.
To learn more about how to care for royal plecos, and maybe even build your own community featuring them, check out Mark Denaro’s cover story in the November 2011 issue http://www.tfhmagazine.com/freshwater/feature-articles/royal-plecos-full-article.htm.
