The Pseudoacanthicus Angelicus Pleco is a new species found in the rivers and tributaries of South America. The main body color is jet black with yellow spots covering the entire body and a long flowing caudal fin. Unlike other Plecos that may look similar to this species, the Angelicus Pleco will maintain this coloration when it is full grown.
Planted tanks with hearty, fast-growing plants, 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 Angelicus Plecostomus. A recommended minimum tank of 70 gallons should be provided to house this fish.
The Pseudoacanthicus Angelicus Pleco has not been bred in an aquarium setting and little is known about their breeding habits.
Feeding the Pseudoacanthicus Angelicus 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.
