This sucker-mouth catfish  is easy to feed as a bottom dweller as it gets most off it’s food off the bottom of the tank, however, they should also be fed with fresh veg, such as cucumber, peas, sweet potato, on a daily basis.Golden Nugget Pleco are highly territorial and will often  chase new  ‘plecos’ introduced to your tank. Ensure that your tank has plenty of hidey-holes in order to reduce fighting for long periods of time.

They require water with a high oxygen levels and a ‘river-style’ environment. As these fish are quite messy having a good filtration system should be considered.
