L121 (Peckoltia braueri, Worm Line Peckoltia, Hemiancistrus braueri)

A distinctive and very attractive small catfish. The ground colour is orangey-brown, fading to off-white underneath. On the flanks and fins there are thick, quite widely spaced, dark brown stripes. The head bears much a network of much thinner brown squiggles. The fins, particularly the dorsal and tail fins, have a rich orange hue. The colours are most intense on juveniles. Catfish identified as "Worm Line Peckoltia" come from a number of different places, L121 from Guyana; L135 from the Rio Demini in Brazil; L305 from the Rio Takutu in Guyana; and Peckoltia braueri itself from a number of rivers in South America across the Negro and Branco river systems.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

An omnivorous species that prefers insect larvae and other meaty foods but will eat some greenstuff including algae, vegetables and soft-leaved aquarium plants. Peckoltia are territorial, but can be kept in groups if provided with sufficient space. a "plot of land" about 30cm by 30cm should be adequate for each fish, and ideally keep either singly or in groups of three or more. Males have bristly odontodes on the pectoral fins, which females lack. This feature will only be obvious on mature specimens. Has been bred in aquaria, and spawns in a cave in much the same way as Ancistrus spp.
