Hemiancistrus subviridis (Green Plec, Lemon-spotted Green Plec)
At attractive, fairly large plec with a yellow-brown body with small off-white spots on the front half of the body. The fins are distinctly yellowy.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Hemiancistrus prefer to stay hidden among rocks and wood, and rarely leave the lower levels of the aquarium. Naturally found among the rocks in fairly fast flowing rivers, often at depth, but while sensitive to poor water quality and low oxygen concentrations, seems to adapt well to aquarium life. Not bred in captivity.
