The fish will be shipped via USPS priority 2 day mail. I guarantee live arrival only as long as the package is delivered within the 2 day time frame. I ship Saturdays and the orders will arrive Monday at your house. Buyer assumes responsibility on any delays or lost packages on USPS side. Live arrival guarantee is void after the 2 day time frame. Fish that are DOA and are within the 2 day time frame will be refunded minus shipping cost. In order to receive refund, you must contact me within 1 hour of posted delivery time and provide pictures of the dead fish in the UNOPENED bag. Failure to do this voids live arrival guarantee. I ship in breather bags and have great success of live arrival. You can see that from my reviews. I do not provide live arrival guarantee with fish that are shipped below 50 degrees so please check your local temperatures for the week. 

The name "Gold Nugget Pleco" is short for "Gold Nugget Plecostomus." It is a suckermouth catfish which was first captured and exported to Great Britain in 1981. Due to the abundance of stock available in the catfish category, it has become very difficult to categorize them by species. As a result, you may see a reference to the letter "L" for the family Loricariidae, followed by a number. The Gold Nugget Pleco is referred to as L018 or L-18 by most hobbyists.

The Gold Nugget Pleco is a shy bottom-dweller that appreciates plenty of driftwood in its environment.

Unfortunately, the Gold Nugget's breeding habits have not been documented.

Feeding the Gold Nugget Pleco is not difficult due to the fact that it is not a finicky eater. Feeding off the bottom of the tank, it gets most of its nutrition from left over food and algae. If there is no algae or left over food present, supplement with high quality flake food, sinking carnivore pellets, and freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex.
