This is one of the rarer varieties of what are called ‘Fancy Plecos’. It originates from the Río Ucayali, in Peru and Brazil.  Being one of the more moderately sized plecos, a larger tank of at least 55 gallons is recommended for long term housing of this fish. They are nocturnal feeders (so feed as late as you can) and are hard to spot during the day when they hide in the rock and wood crevices. Make sure to provide this pleco with lots of coverage, and caves. Chubby Plecos are omnivorous, so be sure to mix up the diet, adding bloodworms to their feeding occasionally.
