Ancistrus sp. Black Rio Negro (L88)

19. May 2015

We received a good number of pure black Ancistrus from the Rio Negro. These have no clearly visible markings, except one: a deepblack spot on the basis of the dorsal fin. This somewhat unspectacular, but characteristic feature made finally the determation possible. Our fish belong to the species named “L88” or Anstrus sp. Black (the latter in Mergus Wels Atlas, Vol. 2: 284). Otherwise there are only unclear, light zones on the back of the fish, which are more or less clearly visible, depending on the mood of the animal.

Even though the species has no white seams, spots or so it looks very interesting and somewhat ancient!

For our customers: the species has code 204561 (4-6 cm) and 204562 (6-8 cm) on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
