The Royal Pleco, known scientifically as Panaque nigrolineatus, is a magnificent and popular pleco species. It's highly prized for its striking pattern of black lines and spots against a lighter background, resembling a royal garment. This large and impressive fish is a fantastic choice for aquarists looking to add a statement piece to their aquarium.

  • Robust and large, growing up to 16 inches in captivity
  • Primarily wood-eating, requiring driftwood in its diet
  • Peaceful nature, but requires plenty of space due to its size

  • Temperature: 24-30°C (75-86°F)

  • Compatibility: Good with similar-sized, non-aggressive fish; may have territorial disputes with other plecos
