from Maranhão, Rio Lageado. Aquarium
Care: The Ancistrus genera make
good community fish where they do not grow too big
for the aquarium. Some species have different requirements
in the aquarium so best to read up on the species
you have whereas if they need higher oxygen requirements
or not, or if they prefer cooler waters if they originate
from the southern parts of South America against the
species from further up north. Diet:
Vegetable foods such as cucumber and courgette and
also tablet and meaty foods. Reproduction:
Lay their eggs in caves as a cluster and the first
signs of the breeding process is a few tiny fry darting
around the community tank.
