The L134 Leopard Frog Pleco, also known as the Imperial Tiger Pleco, is a unique and eye-catching fish that belongs to the Loricariidae family of South American suckermouth catfishes. With its striking black and yellow zebra-like stripes, this fish is a popular choice for planted or nano aquariums. Unlike other plecos that can grow to monstrous sizes, the Leopard Frog Pleco only grows to a size of 3.5 to 4.2 inches, making it a manageable and less messy option for aquariums as small as 30 to 40 gallons. While generally peaceful and hardy, male plecos may be territorial with other males of their species. The Leopard Frog Pleco is primarily nocturnal but becomes active during daytime hours once established in an aquarium with plenty of hiding places. It is an omnivorous species that requires a high-protein diet rich in meaty foods and will enjoy frozen foods such as bloodworms and Tubifex. The Leopard Frog Pleco is not known to eat wood heavily but may benefit from some supplementary wood or bio-film on driftwood. It is not an effective algae eater and will not bother most plants. The species is an egg layer and originates from the Rio Araguaya, affluent of Tocantins, Amazon system, Arunana, Goias, Brazil.
