The Gold Banded Peckoltia Plecostomus comes from the rivers and tributaries of South America. It is a dark brown in color with yellow stripes covering the entire body and fins. Gold Banded Peckoltia Plecos make good additions to any community aquarium.
Planted aquariums with hearty, fast-growing plants, high aeration, and water movement provide for a healthy environment. Rocks and driftwood help to accent a natural habitat and provide hiding spaces to cut down on stress for the Gold Banded Peckoltia Plecostomus. A recommended minimum tank of 30 gallons should be provided to house this fish.
The breeding habits and the difference between sexes of the Gold Banded Peckoltia Plecostomus are unknown.
Feeding the Gold Banded Peckoltia Plecostomus is not difficult since it is not a finicky 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.
