The species pictured has a
slightly different colouration from the original description
and may only be a variant of L. gibbosa or
a new species from this genus. Aquarium Care:
Needs to be kept in an aquarium with a high oxygen
content for their requirements due to them coming
from swift currents where they sit upon rounded stones.
Keep at lower temperatures as high values can be a
death sentence to this species. No information on
diet was available. Remarks:
