Remarks: L025 Scarlet Cactus Plecos (Pseudacanthicus pirarara) are large, aggressive plecos that should be housed with similarly-aggressive fish. This genus of fish earns the nickname "Cactus Plecos" because of the tiny odontodes on their sides, making them very "pokey" in texture. This species has a brown base color with black spots and bright orange tips on the fins. They are very territorial and should be given plenty of caves to choose as their own. They are found in the wild in Brazilian whitewater streams, burrowing in between rocks to create territories.
