Queen Arabesque Pleco L260

The Queen Arabesque Pleco originally came from the Rio Tapajos in Brazil. Queen Arabesque Plecos eat a wide variety of vegetable matter and live and frozen foods including bloodworms and brine shrimp. They prefer a fine sand substrate. The Queen Arabesque Pleco is nocturnal, so it will look for a cave to hide out in most of the day.

The Queen Arabesque Pleco males will have a higher contrast of coloring than the females. Females are shorter and broader. Queen Arabesque Plecos are egg layers, but they are difficult to breed, so they are caught in the wild in South America.
