Clown Pleco L104

The Clown Pleco L104 is a stunning pleco. Reaching a max size of 4 inches, the Clown Pleco is well suited for shrimp or community aquariums. They are very peaceful in general although they may show some aggression toward other Clown Plecos. The addition of pleco caves and driftwood will leave the Clown Pleco feeling right at home. 

Please Note: All fish shipments have a 100% Live Arrival Guarantee when shipping with Overnight (1 Day) option. All other options void our Live Arrival Guarantee for fish. 

The Clown Pleco is mainly a wood eater although it will accept vegetables and algae based foods. While they are hard to sex and breed, breeding them in a home aquarium is possible. The Clown Pleco originates from Venezuela and Columbia. They accept a wide range of parameters and are extremely hardy compared to other similar species. They do prefer soft water so avoid high pH setups such as African Cichlid aquariums. 

The scientific name for the Clown Pleco L104 is Panaque maccus.

We feed our Clown Plecos a large variety of foods: Malaysian driftwood, green beans, NorthFin Kelp Wafers and a mix of ground up NorthFin Veggie, Community and Bug Pro.

Awesome little pleco

He/she has been really shy, but arrived safely and is still going strong weeks later. Would definitely recommend buying from flip!

Fish arrived very healthy and acclimated perfectly. I only wish I had ordered more.

No regrets

I was originally going to pick up a Bristlenose, but then I saw the L104s available, easy decision for me. Great little pleco for a medium sized tank.

Awesome pleco

It arrived alive and very healthy it was very active once I added it to my tank


I ordered 1 clown pleco and it arrived healthy and happy at around 1.5 inches I think. It is still very happy and healthy and it has very beautiful color (whenever I see it lol), not to mention the little guy has eaten all the algae in its tank up. I was hesistant to order fish online, but I am so happy I chose flip aquatics.
