Blue Phantom Pleco

Facts and Information

blue phantom pleco

As beautiful as their native river habitat is, the Blue Phantom Pleco is equally beautiful with its bluish / grey body and white spots. Specimens from the northern most areas of the Rio Orinoco valley tend to be the darkest in color, with specimens from further down river having an appreciably lighter body coloration. Many hobbyists consider the Blue Phantom one of the most attractive species of Loricariids available within the hobby, and anyone who has seen this Pleco species in person would agree that they have a strong argument.
