A colorful, medium growing Hypostomus species found in the clear waters of Brazil’s Rio Tapajos, the L137 or Blue Eyed Red Fin Pleco makes an excellent aquarium fish for a large community or predator aquarium. Like most of their close relatives, they will graze on nuisance algae and should be given a varied diet including fresh vegetables and prepared foods.
