Notes - The royal pleco is a group of stunning fish that occupy faster moving waters. This particular species is found in Brazil, in the Rio Jamanxim. Royal plecos all consume wood, so having aged driftwood is an important part of a healthy diet. They glean nutrition from the organisms and biofilm that grow in and on decaying wood.
