from Rio Curua-Una and the Colombian types from the
H. debilittera group. Sexual differences:

on the posterior part of the body, behind the gill
covers and on the pectoral fin spines. The latter
two are a lot shorter in the females. Aquarium
Care:No problem with keeping
in groups but only one Hypancistrus species
to a tank as there has been reports of hybridisation.

on vegetable foods whereas adults are less so. Frozen
foods such as brine shrimp, mosquito larvae and mussels
as well as tablet foods.
