Relevant Information:

Captured in the Crique Petit Laussat, a stream in French Guiana by the image contributor. This could be an undescribed species. Similar looking to Ancistrus temminckii from Suriname. Aquarium Care: As with most of this genus it will do well in an aquarium where it will wipe out any algae. Diet: Feed vegetable foods such as lettuce, cucumber and courgette (zucchini). Will eat most aquarium fare. Breeding: The Ancistrus geners are relatively easy to breed where the female will deposit her eggs in a confined space such as pipe work.
