L010a (Rineloricaria sp., Red Lizard Catfish, Red Whiptail)

Likely an artificially-bred form, though from which species (or group of species) is not known. Essentially similar to many other whiptails in shape, this fish has a marbled, reddish-brown colouration.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Loricaria sp. tend to be tolerant of one another and can work well in small groups. Breeding has been accomplished for some species, and the genus is notable for being a "lip brooder", the male carrying the eggs around on his lips. The eggs hatch within about two weeks, and the fry will eat green algae and infusorians.
