1. Water Conditions:
The L18 Gold Nugget Pleco thrives in well-maintained aquariums with stable water conditions. ✦Maintain a temperature range of 78-82°F (25-28°C) to ensure optimal comfort.
✦A pH level between 6.5 and 7.5 is suitable for this pleco, replicating its natural habitat in the Amazon River basin.
✦The water hardness should be maintained between 5-15 dGH to ensure the well-being of the L18 Gold Nugget Pleco.
2. Tank Mates:
✦Although the L18 Gold Nugget Pleco is generally peaceful, it is best suited for a species-only or a carefully selected community tank.
✦Avoid housing them with aggressive or territorial fish, as the pleco may become stressed.
✦Compatible tank mates include other peaceful community fish like tetras, rasboras, peaceful cichlids, and non-aggressive bottom dwellers.
✦Ensure that tank mates are not significantly smaller than the pleco, as it may mistake them for food.
3. Feeding Habit:
The L18 Gold Nugget Pleco is primarily herbivorous, requiring a well-balanced diet.
✦Offer a variety of high-quality sinking pellets or tablets specifically formulated for plecos.
✦Supplement their diet with fresh vegetables like zucchini, cucumber, and spinach.
✦Provide occasional treats of live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, or daphnia.
✦Avoid overfeeding to prevent digestive issues; feed them small portions multiple times a day.
✦Ensure the aquarium is well decorated with driftwood, rocks, and caves, as the L18 Gold Nugget Pleco requires hiding spots.
✦The pleco will often spend most of its time hiding during the day and become more active during the night.
✦Maintain good water flow in the tank, but be mindful of strong currents that may stress the pleco.
