Hypancistrus zebra L46


Striking small Loraciid with black and white stripes that give it its name. L46 has wavy lines. Extremely shy fish originating from the Rio Xingu basin in Brazil. There is currently an export ban on this species which has caused the price to be high. Their natural environment is at risk from damming projects.

Keep in species set up in groups of 4 or more with at least one cave per fish, or with small characins, Otocinclus or peaceful dwarf cichlids.

The tank should mimic their natural environment with a substrate of sand, small smooth gravel and pebbles and plenty of smooth boulders, cobbles and rocks forming caves and crevices. Very powerful filtration and high oxygen content essential. Plants optional – few can cope with the flow and temperature.
