Similar to the Hartia genera but the latter
are heavier bodied looking and more flattened. The
belly is also near naked in Hartia wheras
in the Cteniloricaria species they are covered
in bony plates. Aquarium Care: Similar
in their requirements as to the Hartia genera
in that they are not the easiest species to keep as
they will need clean, oxygen rich water and a strong
current. Diet: Dry foods, algae wafers,
Spirulina and normal tablet foods. Frozen foods, Artemia
nauplii, glass worms and Daphnia.
