Locally bred high quality L333 now available at Melbourne Tropical Fish. The L 333 Pleco is a fish species that is facing habitat loss due to the construction of a dam in Brazil. However, efforts are being made to breed them in aquarium populations to preserve the species. To keep them happy in our aquariums, it is important to provide them with lots of cave options as they use them for rest, spawning, and to escape threats. Without enough caves, they may experience stress and harm each other. Melbourne Tropical Fish have these caves in stock. These plecos prefer clean, well-oxygenated water with high flow and a temperature in the low to mid 80s F. They are carnivores and need sinking foods such as brine shrimp and bloodworms, as well as some veggies like algae wafers and zucchini. By providing the right environment and diet, we can ensure the survival and happiness of these wonderful fish in our aquariums.

  1. How big do L333 plecos get? L333 Plecos typically grow to a size of around 4 to 5 inches (10 to 12 centimeters) in length, though some individuals may grow slightly larger.

  2. Are L333 aggressive? L333 Plecos are generally not considered aggressive towards other fish species. However, like many Plecos, they can become territorial, especially if they do not have enough hiding places or if their territory is intruded upon.

  3. Are L333 and L066 the same? No, L333 (King Tiger Pleco) and L066 (King Tiger Pleco) are not the same. While they share the "King Tiger" nickname, they are different species. L333 has a more distinctive color pattern with bold black stripes, while L066 has a similar appearance but with more muted coloration.

  4. What is the scientific name for L333? The scientific name for L333 is Hypancistrus sp. "L333". The "sp." indicates that it is a species yet to be formally described and given a specific scientific name. However, in the aquarium trade, it is commonly referred to as Hypancistrus sp. "L333" based on its L-number classification.
