Baryancistrus sp., L081
General Body Form:
The Gold nugget pleco is an excellent addition to a community aquarium and can be housed with most community fish but Best kept as a single specimen and perhaps even as the only bottom dweller. Territorial with other gold nugget plecos and may show aggression towards other types of pleco. As with all plecos, the gold nugget is a messy fish, it requires a good filtration system. The gold nugget pleco also benefits from fairly strong current and highly oxygenated water. The aquarium should have caves and drift wood. Does not damage live plants. Not suitable for beginner aquarists. A well-established aquarium is best. When choosing your gold nugget pleco insure the tummy area does not appear sucked in.
