Find Your Fish

Hairy Tiger Plecostomus (Peckoltia sp.)

The Hairy Tiger Plecostomus fish or Peckoltia sp. is a great aquarium fish. This fish helps keep your tank clean by eating left over food and algae that gathers up on the bottom of your aquarium. Only growing to about 4" this freshwater fish is also very hardy and gets along well with other fish. Also known as the Hairy Plecostomus, this fish is brown with weird yellow markings covering its entire body and fins. Another thing that is a bit unusual about this fish is the fact that they have small hooks that project off of the end of the scales running down their side.

As with a lot of aquarium fish a few nice hiding spots are always recommended. Also plants are a necessity and good water quality a must. These fish prefer 72-79° F, and a PH level of 6.5-7.4.
