Gold Nugget Pleco
The Gold Nugget Pleco comes in three basic color variations, but these are generally referred to as small spot pattern and large spot pattern. Gold Nugget Plecos must be caught within rocks at the base of small water falls in streams of the Brazilian Amazon basin. These fish are highly prized among pleco enthusiasts.
Most plecos, including Gold Nuggets, do better with a little driftwood in the tank.
