Notes - The Lamborghini of Plecos, the Zebra Pleco is one of the most famous Plecos in the world. Having been driven to the brink of extinction in the wild, the availability of Zebra Plecos has been very limited. Because they are difficult to spawn and produce very few babies, availability continues to be an issue.
These tank raised specimens have been raised on prepared and frozen foods, as well as the occasional treat of live blackworms.
