This beautiful little guy is known as L046
among Pleco keepers and breeders. They are basically a catfish type endemic to Brazil and only can be found in river area called Xingu. First discovered in the early 90s and Brazil government has in the past banned exporting them.

There are several variations like L046, L098, L073, L236 are all commonly known as Zebra Pleco but not same in many ways. Also, they are sold for different prices depending on how rare they are. They are not for an even average fish keeper not just because of their expensive prices but also because they are extremely hard to keep. Zebro Pleco likes clear water and a fast moving current and won’t survive in still or dirty water. Not very territorial but need a planted tank with driftwood, stone and hiding places.. So you have to set up specific tank setup for them. A high flow rate and high filtration is a must to make sure water does not become polluted.

Stunningly beautiful with striking black and white stripes.
