The L-90 Papa Pleco (Panaque Bathyphilus) is a larger species from Peru. As with all Panaque species they need an aquarium with lots of wood to graze on. In addition to being wood eaters, they also love vegetables. They would love an occasionally snack of potatoes, carrots and cucumbers. Be sure not to give them too much protein or fatty foods as it can cause issues in their digestive system. A larger aquarium is required for Papa Plecos. They can reach lengths of up to fifteen inches.
