Lasiancistrus tentaculatus (L092, L194, Woodeating Lasiancistrus)

A fairly small but interesting species with a brownish body covered in small white spots, particularly on the front of the animal. Apparently a true wood-eating catfish like those in the genus Panaque.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A peaceful but territorial plec well suited to a clean, mature aquarium. Should be maintained as Panaque, with an abundant supply of bogwood for feeding on, supplemented with algae wafers and sliced vegetables such as courgette, sweet potato, and carrots. Meaty foods, such as bloodworms, should be provided only as occasional treats.
