The Golden Sailfin Pleco is an awesome Pleco whose coloration changes as it grows. This is a Stage 2 Luteus Pleco, with it moving into a Phase 3. Phase 3 Luteus Plecos are fully golden, which is how they get their name Golden Sailfin Pleco. They require a very large tank, with a 120g being our recommended minimum. They produce a lot of waste as well so heavy filtration is a must.
