Key Features:

  • Striking Coloration: The L397 Alenquer Tiger Pleco boasts a beautiful combination of dark black and orange coloration, which creates a stunning contrast. The distinctive tiger-like stripes running along its body add to its allure. Watching this pleco swim gracefully in your tank is truly a sight to behold.

  • Moderate Size: The L397 Alenquer Tiger Pleco reaches a manageable size, making it suitable for a variety of aquarium setups. At around 4.5 inches (11 cm) when fully grown, they can comfortably reside in medium-sized to large aquariums. Ensure ample swimming space and provide them with hiding spots and caves to mimic their natural habitat.

  • Peaceful Temperament: This pleco species is known for its peaceful nature, making it compatible with a wide range of tank mates. They are generally non-aggressive and can coexist with other peaceful community fish species. However, it's important to ensure appropriate tank size and compatibility when selecting tank mates.

  • Omnivorous Diet: The L397 Alenquer Tiger Pleco is an omnivorous species, meaning it requires a balanced diet. Offer them a combination of high-quality sinking pellets or wafers specifically formulated for plecos, as well as blanched vegetables such as zucchini or spinach. Adding occasional protein-rich treats like bloodworms or brine shrimp will help ensure their nutritional needs are met.

  • Water Conditions: These plecos thrive in well-maintained aquariums with stable water parameters. They prefer a temperature range of 78-84°F (26-29°C) and a pH range of 6.0-7.5. Adequate filtration, regular water changes, and maintaining good water quality are essential for their health and well-being.

  • Hiding Places and Caves: The L397 Alenquer Tiger Pleco appreciates hiding places and caves in the aquarium. Provide them with suitable structures like driftwood, rocks, or PVC pipes where they can retreat and feel secure. The presence of caves not only offers hiding spots but also provides them with opportunities for breeding and territorial behavior.

  • Compatibility: While generally peaceful, it is important to select tank mates that are compatible in terms of size, temperament, and water requirements. Avoid housing them with overly aggressive or large predatory fish. Ideal tank mates include other peaceful community fish species, small cichlids, and similarly sized plecos.

Add a touch of exotic beauty to your aquarium with the L397 Alenquer Tiger Pleco. Its striking coloration, peaceful temperament, and moderate care requirements make it an ideal choice for aquarists seeking a visually captivating and manageable pleco species. With proper care and attention, these plecos will thrive and become a stunning focal point in your aquatic display.
