Overview: These plecos are able to change their color at will. They can be dull grey or they can be bright yellow or anything in-between. Definitely a unique species and they don't get massive!

Setup Consideration: These guys appreciate a lot of cover. So rocks, driftwood, and caves are very much appreciated.

Specific Care Requirements: They enjoy soft driftwood to rasp on.

Diet: Omnivore. They are mostly vegetarian, but do appreciate a good mix of protein in their diet. They're eating algae wafers, Massivore, zucchini, and frozen blood worms for us.
