These fish are home bred by me. This super red line is high quality, parents shown in pictures. They show great coloration even as juveniles and won’t get huge (5-6” max). They are currently unsexed and about 1.25” long and growing.

Ancistrus plecos are omnivores that eat both meaty foods as well as plant matter though they seem to eat more vegatation than meaty foods. They are generally safe for planted aquariums and stay smaller than most other pleco species. A staple food these are raised on are fresh vegetables including canned no salt added french cut green beans as well as fresh zucchini.
