Leopard Frog Pleco (L134) Peckoltia sp.



Fish Statistics
Minimum Tank Size:200 litres
Diet:Omnivore
Origin:South America
Temp (C):22-27 C
Max Size:11 cm
Family:Loricariidae
Temperament:Peaceful
pH:6.0 - 7.5
Care Level:Moderate

The Leopard Frog Pleco is an omnivore with a liking for meaty foods but will eat some veggies too. Wood is appreciated in it's diet
This is a very pretty pleco when acclimated and settled in. New fish in stress coloring are a little drab and don’t really give a clue as to how nice the Leopard Frog Pleco can look.When the L134 does settle down and comes out into view, the contrast between the light and dark bands are striking. As the Leopard Frog Pleco matures and approaches breeding size it becomes very rounded and at this point many aquarists get very frustrated in the attempt to spawn them. When spawning success has been achieved, it has been described as the main trigger behind the spawn was a lowering of the TDS again signaling a change of seasons

Both the male and female L134 get very rounded when mature. The male fish develops odontoides or “hairs” on the rear of the body and pectoral fins. They are cave spawners which need a "season change" signal of a drop in TDS and temperature in order to spawn

I have only just seen this post Sad

damn wish I had kept mine now.... as curby said i just dropped my water temps, added a few plants for them not to be stressed by other fish,
and after about 3 months of patiently waiting they did the deed....
