Care Guide:

L134 Leopard Frog Pleco

Wild Caught - Brazil, Rio Tapajos

Size: 5cm

Adult Size: 10cm+

Temperature: 22 - 27°C 

Diet: The best foods for these are Repashy Super Green which is mostly algae and Repashy Soilent Green which contains a mixture of algae, biofilm/aufwuchs and some fish/invertebrate protein.

That's not to say they don't eat other things quite happily, but an exclusively protein diet is not going to be good for them long term. Flakes, frozen and live foods like bloodworm and daphnia, algae wafers, Repashy gel foods, sinking pellets and granules are all accepted.

They do eat algae and biofilm off the glass and ornaments - we don't have to clean our glass here - although like most fish they won't do much for black beard algae or hair/filamentous algae. They will also tidy up leftover food from other fish. This makes them a great cleanup crew option for larger community fish which can help to manage snail populations and general cleanliness - just be aware that what goes in must come out. 

Habitat: Good flow and lots of oxygen, plenty of light to stimulate algae growth - we might suggest a well established planted tank with plenty of wood and rockwork.
