The many species of Ancistrus with small white dots
are very difficult to tell apart. We recently obtained L181 from the Rio Negro in Brazil. The very same species has been given several L-numbers, eg L71 (from the Rio TapajÃ³s)
or L249 (from the Rio Trombetas and its affluent, the Rio CuminÃ¡). Also extremely similar is L182 from the Rio Branco. May this be as it is: wild collected specimens are the best guarantee not to buy unwanted hybrids? The pretty reddish first dorsal ray in our currently imported specimens is very obvious.
For our customers: the fish have code 26480-L 181-1 (4-6 cm), 26480-L 181-2 (6-8 cm), and 26480-L 181-4 (9-12 cm) on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
