The L181 Pleco, also known as the Peppermint pleco, Starlight Pleco or the Gold Nugget Pleco, is a popular freshwater fish that is highly sought after by aquarium hobbyists. This beautiful species originates from the Amazon River Basin in South America and is known for its striking appearance and fascinating behavior. This species inhabits slow-moving rivers, streams, and tributaries with dense vegetation and rocky substrates. Providing a sandy or fine gravel substrate, along with plenty of hiding spots such as caves, driftwood, and rock formations, will help recreate its natural environment.
