L-134 Leopard Frog Pleco
Plecostomus are a specialty of Aquarium Fish Sale. These catfish originate in South America and many colors, sizes, and patterns can be found – so many that common names often aren’t enough to identify one pleco from another, so in 1988 a tropical fish magazine in Germany called DATZ assigned “L” numbers to distinguish species. Though about as scientific and chiropractic medicine, the system works. We carry a couple plecos that have not been assigned their L number, but the Germans are a cautious folk and we are sure they will get around to it in a precise and correct manner. Medium size is 2” to 3”. Most plecos do better with a little driftwood in the tank.
The Leopard Frog Pleco is collected in the middle Amazon basin. These are rare aquarium fish and at first sight look like a false zebra pleco, but their dorsal fins truly have magnificent coloration. The color pattern is rich and clear and lines are broader. This fish is a collectors dream.
