Overview

The Snowball Plecostomus comes from the rivers and tributaries of South America. It is black with large white spots covering the entire body and fins. Snowball Plecostomus make good additions to any community aquarium.

Planted aquariums 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 reduce stress for the Snowball Plecostomus. A recommended minimum tank of 30 gallons should be provided to house this fish.

The Snowball Plecostomus has not been bred in an aquarium setting and little is known about their breeding habits.

Feeding the Snowball Plecostomus 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.
