The fish normally known as “plecos” originate from the family Loricariidae, otherwise called the “heavily clad catfish”. They incorporate fish from the genera Ancistrus, Baryancistrus, Chaetostoma, Hypostomus, Leporacanthicus, Panaque, Peckoltia, Pseudancistrus and numerous others. Clown Plecos are referred to numerous as “suckerfish” because of the state of their body and mouth and are regularly sold as green growth eaters despite the fact that a significant number of them eat little green growth. Notwithstanding the two-section logical names utilized for every living thing, plecos likewise have their very own naming framework that distinguishes them by “L-number” or “LDA-number”. Despite the fact that this isn’t an “official” naming strategy, it is mainstream among specialists and authorities.
Plecos are commonly leveled with a huge, round head and skinnier body. The body is secured by hard plates and many have solid spines in their balances and even along the body. The mouths are on the underside of the fish and are utilized to grate nourishment from hard surfaces and to help the Pleco keep up its situation in the water stream.
Plecos are regularly obtained by new and experienced aquarists alike as green growth eaters; most Plecos don’t eat green growth or need different sustenances in their eating regimen also. The genera Ancistrus, Peckoltia and Otocinclus are a couple of normal, littler plecos that will help control green growth without eating live plants. Numerous others are omnivores (eat both plant matter and substantial nourishments), carnivores (basically eat substantial sustenances) or scroungers (eat whatever they can discover).
