A. wendellii are similar but the later has
plates formed in the caudal peduncle which A.
grypus lacks. Aquarium Care:
As this species can grow modertly large you would
need to house with same size species or near as they
could pick off small fish at night as this is, as
most Dorads are, reclusive during daylight hours.
Diet: Tablet foods, frozen and live
worms. Will also eat snails in the aquarium.
Upper Mamoré, Paraguay and Pilcomayo River
basins. Type locality: petites flaques
d’eau de la province des Chiquitos.
