Relevant Information:

Aquarium Care: Similar in their requirements as to the Hartia genera in that they are not the easiest species to keep as they will need clean, oxygen rich water and a strong current. Diet: Dry foods, algae wafers, Spirulina and normal tablet foods. Frozen foods, Artemia nauplii, glass worms and Daphnia. Remarks: similar to the Hartia genera but the latter are heavier bodied looking and more flattened. The belly is also near naked in Hartia wheras in the Cteniloricaria species they are covered in bony plates.
