Description: The Royal Panaque is covered everywhere but the belly with large bony plates. Its red-eyes are prominent against a zebra-striped background. The head is large, broad, and flat. The mouth is on the underside of the head and is shaped like a suction cup. The body color is black with long white to yellow stripe that extend the length of the body. The dorsal fin stands tall when erect. The iris of healthy individuals is bright orange to red. The species is standard for the genus. This species grows slowly and is sensitive to changes in water chemistry. Bare in mind that this fish will produce a lot of waste due to its diet so will need a large external filter which will turn the tank contents around about six times in the hour and give it a good water flow. The males develop very long interopercular odontes and hooked spines on the anterior pectoral fin spines. Very little to almost nothing documented on the breeding of royal plecos. Most are wild caught.
