Comments: This dwarf Pleco does eat algae but often it will not clean up a tank. It prefers meaty foods to algae. It is also very shy so provide many hiding places, driftwood, and a dark bottom. It will defend its favorite cave against other fish. Feed this fish algae wafers, sinking pellets, and blanched lettuce or cucumbers.

Comments: This fish is quite shy, but very cute. A major part of its diet is wood, which it needs to survive. Make sure you have some driftwood in the tank, the clown pleco will scrape it clean every day. Because there is not much nutrition in wood, it poops quite a lot too so good filtration is recommended. A great addition to the tank!
