Gold Banded Peckoltia

Peckoltia vittata
The Gold Banded Peckoltia Plecostomus comes from the rivers and tributaries of South America. It is dark brown with yellow stripes covering the entire body and fins. The Gold Banded Peckoltia Plecostomus makes a good addition to any community aquarium.Planted aquariums with hardy, fast-growing plants, high aeration, and water movement provide a healthy environment. Rocks and driftwood help to accent a natural habitat and provide hiding spaces to reduce the stress for the Gold Banded Peckoltia Plecostomus. A recommended minimum tank of 120 L should be provided to house this fish.Feeding the Gold Banded Peckoltia Plecostomus is not difficult since it is not a finicky eater. Feeding off the bottom of the aquarium, it gets most of its nutrition from left over food and algae. If there is no algae or left over food present, supplement with high quality flake food, sinking carnivore pellets, freeze-dried bloodworms, and tubifex.They grow up to 10 cm and need water temp. around 24'C with pH 6.5-7.
