Product Name: Guacamaya Pleco (Panaqolus sp. “Guacamaya”)

Product Description: Discover the captivating Guacamaya Pleco (Panaqolus sp. “Guacamaya”), a striking freshwater fish renowned for its unique patterning. Originating from the Amazon basin, these exquisite plecos are sure to become a prized addition to your aquarium collection.

Origin and Habitat: The Guacamaya Pleco hails from the pristine waters of the Amazon River and its tributaries, where it inhabits slow-moving streams and heavily vegetated areas. Found among submerged roots and fallen branches, these plecos thrive in environments rich in driftwood and hiding spots.

Tankmate Compatibility: Known for their peaceful nature, Guacamaya Plecos are suitable for community aquariums with other non-aggressive fish species. They coexist harmoniously with a variety of tankmates, including tetras, rasboras, corydoras catfish, and other small to medium-sized freshwater fish.

Behavior and Feeding: Guacamaya Plecos are primarily nocturnal and spend much of their time foraging for food among the substrate and decor. These omnivorous plecos have a hearty appetite and eagerly consume algae, sinking pellets, blanched vegetables, and occasional meaty treats like bloodworms or brine shrimp.

Size and Growth: As juveniles, Guacamaya Plecos are relatively small, typically measuring around 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7.5 centimeters) in length. However, with proper care and ample space, they can reach sizes of up to 5 to 6 inches (12.5 to 15 centimeters) in adulthood. Providing a spacious aquarium with suitable hiding places encourages healthy growth and development.

Care Requirements: Maintaining stable water parameters, including temperature, pH, and water hardness, is essential for the well-being of Guacamaya Plecos. They thrive in well-oxygenated aquariums with ample hiding spots provided by driftwood, caves, and live plants. Regular water changes and a varied diet contribute to their overall health and vitality.
