If you are looking for plecos (Loricariidae), you have come to the right place. We import and stock one of the most diverse selections of pleco species in the USA. Currently we have imported 175 different types and species of plecos which includes several color phases, wild short body, long and shortfin plecos and new collection points since 2019. Each shipment we try to bring in something new from the biggest of plecos to the smallest. We also have had several first-time species in the USA such as the albino Luteus, albino parancistrus aurantiacus, Hypostomus jaguribensis, Hypostomus alatus, albino Rubbernose Pleco, albino South American Bumblebee Catfish, leusistic unknown species of Corydoras, the original Honda Panaque cochliodon, Crenicichla rosemariae and many more. The Rhinelepis strigosa, which is the rarest of all plecos, was also imported by us. We have also imported Australian Lungfish.
All new imports are feeding on Fluval Bug Bites. To keep your new fish eating once they arrive please consider purchasing to feed them entirely on Fluval Bug Bites or mix in with your current fish food. I earn a small commission on each purchase which helps feed our new fish. You can purchase from the link below:

Some fish require the use of a special shipping bag. This price is automatically added to the total of the fish, which is an extra $15 per bag. These bags ensure the fish can’t bust through them. The typical plastic 2 - 4 MM bags can’t handle most large plecos, catfish, etc. This option can’t be removed. The bags are reusable as long as you do not damage them while opening. Small plecos under 8” (unless otherwise noted) will not have this special shipping bag applied.
This line is being offered by German wholesaler Aquarium Glaser. They imported some wild L173 many years ago and placed them with some of their trusted breeders. Offspring are coming out every now and then, but only “L173b” are listed. These are less zebra-like in their markings than what L173 can be. “L173b” is not an official number, it's simply Glaser's way of saying that the fish are b-class, not a-class...whether or not these are indeed L173 or an unfortunate mix of similar forms is impossible to determine.
