L007 (Leporacanthicus cf. galaxias, Galaxy Pleco)

L007 and L029 are rather similar in appearance and both sold under the "Galaxy Pleco" name, but L007 has a taller dorsal fin and a broader snout. Both species have a dark body with yellowy-white spots.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A fairly big plec that feeds primarily on invertebrates such as insect larvae, worms, prawns, and snails. Algae wafers, sliced vegetables, and catfish pellets will also be taken. Comes from fast-flowing waters, and needs clean water with lots of oxygen. Adding airstones or powerheads to increase water movement is highly recommended. Mix only with fishes that appreciate such conditions, such as Congo tetras and rheophilic cichlids such as Steatocranus spp.
