Hypancistrus spec. L 66 „King Tiger“

6. July 2007

As one of the early imported representatives of the so-called L-number catfishes L 66 has already an unbroken popularity. At present we can offer beside wild caughts also very beautiful german breds. Such bright grounded L 66 are at least as attractive as the most „newer“ Hypancistrus species. With a final size of approx. 15 cm they belong to the larger representatives of their genus, a smaller group of them can be maintained very well in tanks starting from 70cm length. As all Hypancistrus they are carnivores, a vegetarian complementary food is estimated. They do not clean tanks and their surrounding, for this task the long-known Ancistrus „dolichopterus“ are substantially better suitable.
