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:

Chubby plecos tend to change their color whenever they want. Nobody knows why they change. They can be solid gold one month and jet black the next month to 50/50 colors like gold and black. There is no way to make them change from one color to another.
The Chubby you see in the photos may not look like this at the time of purchase due to their color changes.
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.
South America: Ucayali, Tocantins and Xingu rivers.
