L137 Blue Eye Red Fin Pleco 3"

Description

The L137 Blue Eye Red Fin Pleco is a specific type of catfish that falls under the genus Peckoltia. More commonly known as the Blue Eye Red Fin Pleco or the L137 Pleco, this species is a popular choice for freshwater aquariums due to its striking appearance and manageable size.

  1. Temperature: The ideal temperature range for the L137 Blue Eye Red Fin Pleco is between 72 to 79 degrees Fahrenheit (22 to 26 degrees Celsius).

  2. Minimum Size Tank: To provide adequate space and comfort for this fish, it is recommended to keep them in a tank that is at least 30 gallons (113 liters).

Feeding Habits: The L137 Blue Eye Red Fin Pleco is primarily an herbivore. In an aquarium setting, they can be fed a diet that consists of high-quality sinking algae wafers, along with occasional feedings of fresh vegetables such as zucchini, cucumber, and spinach.

Habitat Preference: In their natural habitat, these fish are commonly found in fast-flowing rivers and streams with rocky substrates. They prefer areas with plenty of hiding spots such as caves, driftwood, and rocky crevices.

Water pH Level: They thrive in slightly acidic to neutral water conditions, with a pH range of 6.5 to 7.5.

Behavior: The L137 Blue Eye Red Fin Pleco is generally peaceful and relatively solitary, spending a significant amount of time grazing on surfaces and scavenging for food. They are known to be more active during the night (nocturnal) and tend to be bottom-dwellers.

Color and Other Details: As their name suggests, the L137 Blue Eye Red Fin Pleco has a distinct blue-eyed and red-finned appearance. They have a dark body with a marbled pattern and striking blue eyes, making them a visually appealing addition to a freshwater aquarium. They can grow up to about 5-6 inches (12-15 centimeters) in length, making them a moderately sized fish suitable for medium-sized aquariums. Provide them with ample hiding spaces and a well-maintained environment to ensure their well-being and comfort.
