The most vibrant form of all the Gold Nugget Plecos, and one of the most brightly colored of all plecos, the L177 Goldseam Gold Nugget has been a popular aquarium fish for many years. Found in the rocky, warm, and fast-flowing Xingu and Iriri rivers in Brazil, these fish require somewhat specialized conditions to thrive in the aquarium and may not be the best choice for the average community tank. They will do best in warmer (80F ), well-oxygenated water with moderate to strong current, and can be shy if kept individually – keeping multiple fish together along with ample hiding places is best. Although they will eat vegetables and algae-based foods, they also readily accept frozen bloodworms and carnivore diets.
