SKU N/A Categories , Tags ,


Butterfly Plecostomus (L168) is one of the smaller species of pleco with a striking pattern. It has the unique ability to camouflage based on their surroundings. When placed on a light colored substrate, they will display a bright pattern. When placed on a dark colored substrate or low light environment, they will display a much darker pattern. In fact, when the butterfly pleco was first discovered in the wild, they were discovered at night when they were displaying a darker pattern. When the fish changed its color later on, the people that caught the fish were confused since it looked like a different fish.
