If you are an aquarium hobbyist who loves rare fish, the Blue-eyed Pleco is a treat to find. These fish have a reputation as good tank cleaners because they have a powerful suction mouth that they use to feed and also anchor themselves in the fast-moving river waters of their native Colombia. Although this example is only a few inches long, a Blue-eyed Pleco can grow over a food long in the wild. Best care practices for this fish include a water temperature in the mid 70s, good water flow in the tank, and a piece of driftwood for shelter and to feed on. Their diet consists mainly of algae, wood, and some vegetables like squash or potato. High protein foods should be avoided.
