L340 (Hypancistrus sp., Mega Clown Plec)
An attractive, quite small catfish with a yellow brown body marked with sharply defined, moderately thin, irregular brown stripes. The fins are similarly marked. May be sold as either L340 or LDA19.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Highly territorial and best kept apart from other plecs, but tolerant of community fishes of different types. Because of its need for fast-flowing, well oxygenated water with low levels of nitrate, this species is best suited to tanks with fishes that need similar conditions.
