Overview

The Peppermint Plecostomus is one of the more beautiful plecos and has a dark brown to black color. The body and fins are marked with many very small brilliant white specks. They make a wonderful addition to any freshwater, peaceful community aquarium. There are hundreds of fish in the Loricariidae family, and as a result, you may see a reference to the letter "L" for the family Loricariidae, followed by a number. The Peppermint Plecostomus is referred to as (L031), or (L-31) by most hobbyists.

Planted aquariums 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 reduce stress for the Peppermint Plecostomus. A 50-gallon aquarium or larger is recommended for this species.

Feeding the Peppermint 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 herbivore pellets, and freeze-dried bloodworms, and tubifex.
