Relevant Information:

Similar looking to L. caucanus from the Pacific rivers of Colombia. Sexual Differences: Males have longer pectoral fins and have a heavier growth of odontodes behind the gill covers and on the edges of the snout. Aquarium Care: Relatively easy to keep but large males may tend to be territorial. Diet: Omnivore. Pretty similar to the Ancistrus genera with a vegetable diet. Will also take tablets/wafers, fine live and frozen foods.
