Hypostomus luteus Hypostomus luteus Hypostomus luteus

From southern Brazil and northern Argentina originates the probably most beautiful representative of the genus Hypostomus. Contrary to many other loricariids they become more beautiful with increasing age, since the portion of the yellow body parts constantly increases. Their southern area of origin suggests a tolerance in relation to low temperatures. They can be can maintained in the unheated room aquarium. Since a size of more than 30 cm can be reached a tank of appropriate size should be available.(Photo F. Schäfer, Text K. Diehl)
