L200a Hi- Fin Green Phantom Pleco (Hemiancistrus Subviridis) 6"+

Description

The L200a Hi-Fin Green Phantom Pleco (Hemiancistrus subviridis) is a type of freshwater fish that falls under the category of catfish. Specifically, it is a member of the Loricariidae family, commonly known as the "suckermouth" or "armored" catfish. Below are some details about this fish:

  1. Temperature: The L200a Hi-Fin Green Phantom Pleco thrives in temperatures between 72°F to 79°F (22°C to 26°C).

  2. Minimum Tank Size: A minimum tank size of 30 gallons is recommended for a single adult L200a Hi-Fin Green Phantom Pleco.

Feeding Habits: In the wild, these plecos are known to be primarily herbivorous, feeding on algae and plant matter. In an aquarium setting, they should be provided with a diet that includes algae wafers, fresh vegetables, and sinking pellets or tablets.

Habitat Preference: They prefer aquariums with plenty of hiding spots, such as caves or driftwood, where they can retreat and feel secure. A well-decorated tank with rocks and plants can mimic their natural habitat.

Water pH Level: The ideal pH level for L200a Hi-Fin Green Phantom Plecos ranges from 6.5 to 7.5, simulating their natural South American river habitat.

Behavior: These plecos are generally peaceful, but males can sometimes exhibit territorial behavior, especially during breeding periods. They are known to be active at night and may explore the tank in search of food.

L200a Hi-Fin Green Phantom Plecos are solitary fish that prefer to be alone or with their own species. They can be kept with other non-aggressive fish that share similar water parameter requirements.

They are primarily nocturnal, being more active during the night and early morning hours.

This species is a typical bottom dweller, often grazing on algae and organic debris found on the tank floor.

Color and Other Details: The L200a Hi-Fin Green Phantom Pleco is characterized by its striking green and black coloration, with a high dorsal fin. It is sought after by many aquarists for its unique appearance and ability to help keep the tank clean by consuming algae and other organic matter.
