Panaque albomaculatus (LDA 31, Mustard Spot Plec, Orange Spot Plec, Panaqolus albomaculatus)

Dark grey body with orange-white spots on the body and fins. The size of the spots varies, with "large spot" and "small spot" forms being found. Males become very bristly, especially along the sides of the flanks between the pectoral fins and tail.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A medium-sized Panaque that requires warm, well oxygenated water, preferably soft and slightly acidic. Because of the elevated temperatures this species needs to do well, take care not to overstock the aquarium and provide supplementary water circulation and aeration as required.

In common with other members of the genus, this species feeds extensively on wood. Bogwood should always be provided in the aquarium. In addition, vegetables such as courgette, carrot, potato and cucumber should be provided on a regular basis. Algae-based pellets and wafers are a useful supplement. Bloodworms and other meaty foods are also required, this species being somewhat more omnivorous than is typical for the genus. Doesn't eat much algae.

Territorial, but can be maintained in groups provided the fish are not overcrowded and kept in a roomy tank with adequate hiding places.
