Currently is the best import season for plecos from the Rio Orinoco. So we have a large number of species in stock. Among them is of course Hypancistrus debilittera, which was called L129 before it became described scientifically. This is a pretty, small species with an enormous range of colour pattern. There hardly exist two specimens that look exactly identical. The maximum size of that species is approximately 10 cm.
In our current imports almost all specimens have amore contrasting pattern than we are used to in that species. We cannot explain that phenomenon, but we really like it!
For our customers: the fish have code 26480-L129-1 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
