The L333 Yellow King Tiger Pleco (Hypancistrus sp.) is found in the swift flowing, high oxygenated, soft waters of the Rio Xingu.
The ones available for purchase are our F1 (first generation) juveniles from our group of wild caught adults. We are proud to be able to offer captive bred fish in the hopes of helping conservation efforts of the species.
