The L114 Leopard Cactus Pleco is a visually striking pleco species that originates from the Rio Demini, a tributary of Brazil's Rio Negro. In its natural habitat, it thrives in warm and acidic blackwater areas. When kept in an aquarium, these plecos are known for their hardiness and adaptability. However, they tend to do best in relatively soft water conditions and benefit from the presence of abundant driftwood or other hiding spots.
Being primarily carnivorous, the L114 Leopard Cactus Pleco should be offered protein-rich foods to meet its dietary requirements. Suitable options include Repashy Gel Diets or Fluval Bug Bites.
Similar to other cactus plecos belonging to the Pseudacanthicus genus, the L114 Leopard Cactus Pleco displays territorial behavior towards conspecifics and similar species. However, they typically coexist well with most tankmates as long as there is ample cover and hiding places provided in the aquarium.
