L015 (Peckoltia vittata, Candy Striped Plec)
A small, attractively patterned plec ideally suited to a clean, mature aquarium. Will eat some algae but also needs sliced vegetables and periodic offerings of suitable meaty foods such as bloodworms. This species is often confused with Panaque maccus, the clown plec.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Peckoltia are territorial, but can be kept in groups if provided with sufficient space. a "plot of land" about 30cm by 30cm should be adequate for each fish, and ideally keep either singly or in groups of three or more. Males have bristly odontodes on the pectoral fins, which females lack. This feature will only be obvious on mature specimens. Has been bred in aquaria, and spawns in a cave in much the same way as Ancistrus spp.
