Similar looking to Hypancistrus
(L199) from the upper Orinoco drainage of Venezuela.
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 Hypancistrussp. 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.
