This genera posses a flattened body form with a large
mouth with numerous teeth. Aquarium Care:
The Pseudancistrus genera are not the easiest
species to maintain in the aquarium as they will need
pristine water conditions with well filtered water
which should not be too hard. Warm water should be
the norm. Adult males are very territorial and will
not get on with other large Loricariid catfish. Sexual
Differences: Males have a broad head and
posses long bristles along the edge of the snout.
Diet: Aufwuch grazer, mainly vegetarian,
with lettuce, spinach, cucumber and courgette (zucchini),
vegetarian flake and tablets. Will eat other foods
also such as insect larvae, zooplankton and soft wood
but will need to be kept on a mainly green diet.
