Hypostomus isbrueckeri

27. November 2007

(28.Nov.2007)At the moment we have a group of nearly full-grown Hypostomus isbrueckeri in stock. The here pictured male is easily distinguishable from its partners by the bright colors of the caudal fin. This is probably the only Loricariid species which shows such a pronounced gender difference. Their origin is the border region Brazil, Argentina, and imports of them are rather rare. As recently some breeding attempts of big loricariids were succesful, ambitious breeders should also try to spawn this species. Since they originate from a region with a subtropical climate, they should not be kept all year round at high temperatures. A well-structured, unheated tank should be ideal for them.
