L030 (Oligancistrus sp.)

An attractive little catfish that is fairly widely sold and does well in clean, mature aquaria. Essentially dark grey with small, widely spaced white spots. A feature of this catfish (and L016) is that the dorsal fin and adipose fin are fused.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A territorial but otherwise harmless catfish ideally suited to community tanks. Can be kept in groups if each specimen is provided with plenty of space and a suitable cave or burrow of its own. These fish should be fed on vegetarian food including algae wafers and sliced vegetables such as courgette, but can also be given small amounts of meaty foods such as bloodworms. Not yet bred in captivity.
