Relevant Information:

The Lasiancistrus species are quite similar to the Ancistrus genus but have a flatter profile and do not possess the tentacles on the mouths of this genera. 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: Bogwood should be provided for rasping on and vegetables will be their main dietary requirements. Will also take veg. tablets/wafers, fine live and frozen foods.
