This Ancistrus species has large white spots
with extensions to the upper and lower caudal fin
rays. Looked upon as one of the more prettier species
of this genus. As with all of this genera the males
and females have bushy tentacles around mouth with
the male having the largest growth. It is reported
(Seidel,Ingo 2008) that this is a large species (25-30cm)
which grows smaller in the aquarium. 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.
