A beautiful pleco found in the Ucayali and Maranon river drainages in Peru, the Flash or Emperor is a relatively small species with a maximum adult size of 5″. Hardy and undemanding, the L204 is not an algae eater by nature but more than makes up for it with their striking striped pattern and distinctive lyretail. They should be fed a varied diet high in protein.
