The L340 Mega Clown Pleco, scientifically known as Hypancistrus sp. L340, is a captivating and highly sought-after freshwater catfish species that adds a touch of charm and elegance to aquariums. With its striking coloration and unique patterns, the L340 Mega Clown Pleco is a true gem that will elevate the aesthetics of your aquatic habitat.


The L340 Mega Clown Pleco showcases a visually captivating appearance with its intricate patterns of dark stripes and spots on a pale background. These patterns create a beautiful contrast that sets it apart from other plecos. They are known for their distinctive "clown" appearance, which includes a striking finnage pattern.


These plecos are generally peaceful and can be kept in community aquariums with other non-aggressive fish species. However, it's essential to provide hiding spots and caves in the aquarium, as they appreciate having their own territory. They are primarily nocturnal and become more active during the evening hours.


Caring for the L340 Mega Clown Pleco involves creating a stable environment with appropriate water parameters. They thrive in freshwater with specific requirements, including stable temperature, pH, and water hardness levels. A well-decorated aquarium with hiding spots, caves, and driftwood will provide them with suitable habitats. Their diet consists of a mix of high-quality sinking pellets, fresh vegetables, and occasional protein-based foods.


Water Parameters:

  • Temperature: 77-82°F (25-28°C)
  • pH: 6.5-7.5
  • Water Hardness (GH): 6-10 dGH
