We imported some of these very much pleasing Loricarian species from Columbia. Like most of the Spatuloricaria species it can become quite large, however they probably will not reach the described 40-50cm like other species. Since they already exhibit the typical secondary sex characteristics (men with “beard”), they might exceed their present size of approx. 20cm insignificantly. Not only for the Loricariinen enthusiasts an interesting species.
