Relevant Information:

L410 was presented in the DATZ magazine of December 2007. Similar looking to L399 and L400 from the Rio Xingu but L410 seem to have larger/more elongated fins. Aquarium Care: No problem with keeping in groups but only one Hypancistrus species to a tank as there has been reports of hybridisation. Diet: Like all Hypancistrus sp. they prefer a meaty diet. Feed frozen foods such as bloodworm and beef heart, live foods such as brine shrimp, white and grindal worms and prepared foods such as sinking tablets and presoaked flake food. When young they seen to prefer a liking for vegetable foods.
