New species

We found this species of pleco in an aquarium shop in England. It had been caught in nature by mistake. Our aquarists soon realised that it was an entirely new and previously unclassified species.

Hopefully there are more

At the moment, we only have one Iguazu pleco, but we hope that another one will turn up at some point, as this would give us the opportunity to breed them. For now, this pleco helps us keep the aquarium free of algae.
