The Magnum Plecostomus comes from the Amazon Basin of South America. This Plecostomus can be identified by its lime green body coloration with a bright yellow stripe on both the dorsal and caudal fin. This hard to find species makes a good addition to any community tank.
Planted tanks with 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 Mango Pleco. A recommended minimum tank of 70 gallons should be provided to house this fish.
Breeding in captivity has not been successful yet, however, different methods are being used in the industry. This is an egg laying Plecostomus that tends to use plants and rocks as an anchor.
