The L-330 Watermelon Pleco (Panaque sp. L330) is a freshwater fish species that is highly sought after by aquarium hobbyists for its striking appearance and peaceful nature. They have a black or dark brown body with green spots that resemble the seeds of a watermelon, hence their name. Watermelon Plecos prefer a well-decorated tank with plenty of hiding spots and vegetation, and they are generally active during the day.
