A good helper

The worm line peckoltia is a very useful fish, because it eats the algae on the aquarium glass and decorations. This helps our aquarists to keep the aquarium looking nice.

Codename

When a new pleco is discovered, it is assigned an L-number. The L stands for Loricariidae, the Latin name for the suckermouth catfish family. Later, once the species has been classified scientifically, it may end up designated with several numbers if the scientist discovers that the same species has been assigned different L-numbers. The clown pleco has three L-numbers.
