L-200 Green Phantom Pleco
The Green Phantom Pleco is found in a separate region of the Amazon and developed a greenish yellow body as opposed to the blue body of the Blue Phantom Pleco, which is the exact same species. Another reason to thank the Germans for the invention of the L numbers. These fish are good scavangers and good tank mates. They do need veggies if not present in the prepared foods, though community prepared foods have a veggie component, or should (check the ingredients!). Also, these plecos are more comfortable with some drift wood to hang onto.
