| || | Candy Striped/Tiger Pleco ???
Okay I have been hearing some conflicting information. What is the minimum tank size for a Candy Striped Pleco? Also known as Tiger Plecos, scientific name is Peckoltia vittata (L015). They reach about five inches and can be kept lone. I have one in a 20g high with one male betta, four guppies, five teeny Red Dwarf Rasboras, and a few snails. They have all been getting along perfectly. I was told this is okay, am I completely off the mark here lol? I really hope I haven't been hurting the pleco :(.
I have a 20g long I could move her into, if the height makes a difference.
BTW I have two large pieces of aquarium driftwood in there. She hasn't moved from one of the pieces in about a week, is this normal?
SO worried, I feel like there is not much info out there for specific types of plecos.
