This pleco has a reticulated pattern of white with larger black (leopard) spots, and just a touch of orange to the fringe of the tail and dorsal fins. One of the larger plecostomus, the Leopard Pleco can be kept with larger, more aggressive fish. The under slung mouth of the pleco acts as a suction devise to hold it in place, and to allow the specialized teeth to rasp algae off of rocks, plants and glass. This makes the pleco one of the best eaters of algae, its primary job in the home aquarium. They require some cover in the form of a rocky cave or large piece of driftwood in which to "hang out" most of the time.
