L036 (Hemiancistrus spilomma)

An attractive medium-sized plec with a pale body covered with small dark patches. There is a distinct orange tinge to the dorsal fin. An omnivorous species, this fish will eat some algae and sliced vegetables such as courgette, but also appreciates small invertebrates such as bloodworms. Can be confused with a number of other L-number plecs, such as L013.

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.
