The Magnum Pleco comes from the Amazon Basin of South America. This Pleco can be identified by its lime green body coloration with a bright yellow stripe on both the dorsal and caudal fin. This hard to find species makes a good addition to any community tank.
Planted tanks with high aeration and water movement make for a healthy environment. Rocks and driftwood help to accent a natural habitat and provide hiding spaces to cut down on stress for the Magnum Pleco. A recommended minimum tank of 200 litres should be provided to house this fish.

Breeding in captivity has not been successful yet, however, different methods are being used in the industry. This is an egg laying Plecostomus that tends to use plants and rocks as an anchor.

Feeding the Magnum Pleco is not difficult due to the fact that it is not a picky eater. Feeding off the bottom of the aquarium, it gets most of its nutrition from left over food and algae. If there is no algae or left over food present, supplement with high quality flake food, sinking carnivore pellets, freeze-dried bloodworms, and tubifex.
