Appearance:
First impression of the spilomma is that it looks very similar to a Hypostomus but odontodes behind the gill cover are typical of the Ancistrus family.

Compatibility:
The Hemiancistrus spilommais a fairly non aggressive pleco even as an adult, this makes them ideal for medium sized fish tanks.

Sexing and Breeding:
Males have longer odontodes behind the gill covers and on the pectoral-fin spine.They also have odontode growth on the lower half of the body.

Diet: Omnivore but need a more veggie based diet. Plenty of fresh vegetables and also some meaty foods like mosquito larvae and brine shrimp

Water parameters:
PH 5.5-7.5 Temp 25-29c
They require soft to medium hard water and a strong current. Due to the higher temp required, plenty of oxygen is needed. 120cms in the smallest tank size that is recommended.

Max Size:
17cms

Bred by:
Unknown
