The Zebra Pleco is a dwarf species that reaches a maximum size of 3-1/2 inches in length and is part of the Loricariidae family.  Due to the great number of varieties within the catfish family, it has become very difficult to categorize them by species. As a result, you may see a reference to the letter "L" for the family Loricariidae, followed by a number. The Zebra is referred to as L-46.

The Zebra pleco is a nocturnal fish that is most active at night.  This beautiful species occupies the bottom of the aquarium and prefers plenty of rockwork and driftwood in its environment for hiding. This shy fish should not be kept with other bottom dwelling fish that will out compete them for food. Ideally the aquarium should be maintained at water temperatures between 77-86 degrees, with an abundance of live plants.

Zebra Plecos do not chew on driftwood and should be fed meaty foods that sink to the bottom of the aquarium. Ideal foods include a high quality flake food, sinking carnivore pellets, frozen or freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, brine shrimp, and sinking algae wafers.
