These particular specimens
were caught in the Paraná River, two miles
from Paraná City and in a small lagoon called
"La Ensenada" by the Image contributor in
2003. There are close on 10, still to be identified
species of Rineloricaria in the
Paraná river basin and we have labeled them
as they are collected as, "Paraná 1"
& 11 etc. This species has one filament on the
top lobe of the caudal fin and is light brown
in colouration. It also has irregular blotches on
the head and down the length of its body and a more
blunted head than "Paraná 1"
and it also possess more rounded dorsal and
pectoral fins than the latter. Aquarium
Care: As with all Rineloricaria
provide long leaved plants or bamboo stalks for them
to hang on to as you can see in the second thumbnail
image. Diet: Omnivore. Vegetable
food such as cucumber and other various foods such
as tablet, flake and frozen.
