L-34 Medusa Pleco

The medusa pleco is a true oddball fish. This plecostomus from Brazil has a low profile and a very "bushy" head that looks like the mythical head of Medusa. Medusa plecos are scavengers and meat eaters. These catfish are difficult to breed, all are wild caught in the aquarium trade, and they are easy neighbors and hardy.
