Candy Striped Pleco is a dwarf Pleco native to the Amazon River in South America. They are often confused with other types of plecos with similar appearance, such as Clown Plecos. This fish features a beige to dark brown base colour with cream-coloured stripes. This species eats algae on wood and hardscape features but won’t usually remove algae from aquarium glass. Keep this in mind if you’re choosing fish for algae control.
