The Peckoltia Lineola, also known as the Clown Peckoltia or the Clown Pleco, is a charming and sought-after freshwater fish species that adds character and vibrancy to any aquarium. With its unique appearance and peaceful nature, the Peckoltia Lineola is a popular choice among aquarists.


The Peckoltia Lineola features a beautiful and intricate pattern of black and white stripes along its body. These stripes create a striking contrast and give it a clown-like appearance, hence its common name. They typically grow to a size of around 4-5 inches, making them suitable for medium-sized aquariums.


Known for their peaceful and non-aggressive nature, Peckoltia Lineola are ideal for community tanks. They appreciate a well-aquascaped aquarium with plenty of hiding spots provided by caves, driftwood, or rock formations. Creating a natural environment with plants and soft substrate will help them feel secure.


Feeding the Peckoltia Lineola is relatively easy as they are omnivorous. They will readily accept a variety of foods, including high-quality sinking pellets, algae wafers, vegetable matter, and occasional live or frozen foods such as bloodworms or brine shrimp. Including some driftwood in the tank is beneficial, as they will graze on it for supplemental nutrition.
