The Royal Plecostomus is also known as the Dull-eyed Royal Pleco or the Broken line Plecostromus. It is dark brown to black with irregular golden horizontal stripes.
Planted aquariums with hardy, fast-growing plants, high aeration, and water movement provide a healthy environment. Rocks and driftwood help to accent a natural habitat and provide hiding spaces to reduce the stress for the Royal Plecostomus.
The Royal Plecostomus has not been bred in an aquarium and little is known about their breeding habits.
Feeding the Gold Royal Plecostomus is not difficult since 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.
