Baryancistrus sp. LDA33 (Big White Spot Plec, Baryancistrus sp. L142)
A large, chunky loricariid catfish with large white spots against a dark grey-brown to black background. Unlike the majority of white-on-black loricariids, the white spots on this species stay relatively large throughout growth, so that the adults look much as they did as juveniles. Males have more developed odontodes on the cheeks and pectoral fins, but otherwise the sexes are similar.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
An active, open water loricariid catfish that, in common with other Baryancistrus requires an aquarium with plenty of water movement and a high oxygen concentration. Wild fish live in river rapids, grazing on the algae and small invertebrates found encrusting stones. In the aquarium offer a mix of algae-based foods (such as wafers) together with meaty foods like bloodworm. Provided its oxygen requirements are met and the water is of excellent quality, these fish have proven to do well in aquaria. Other fast-water fish, such as silver dollars and Congo tetras, make good companions.
Baryancistrus tend to be aggressive and territorial and should not be kept with other loricariid catfish with which they might fight. Breeding is unknown in home aquaria.
