Name: Peckoltia sp. L061

Common Name :

Location : Oiapoque and Pantanari River (Ampa), Brasil



Compatibility: Mainly peaceful but can be a little territorial, this can be combated by providing plenty of hiding places and not over crowding. Being smaller in size, these suit many aquariums.

Sexing and Breeding: Males develop odontodes on the front pectoral fins whereas females don't. Females are wider across the girth which is easier to see when viewed from above. A Cave spawner.

Diet: An omnivore that leans towards a meatier diet, so the main diet should consist of meaty foods such as frozen foods (tubifex, mosquito larvae, blood worms, artemia), dry foods (freeze-dried foods, flakes, granules), carnivore sinking pellets, and occasionally some small pieces of shrimp, mussels or fish fillet. Once acclimatized, it may also accept vegetable matter such as algae/spirulina disks and fresh vegetables (lettuce, zucchini/courgette, eggplant/aubergine, capsicum, carrot, peas, preboiled spinach).

Water parameters: temperature 24-29C or 75-84F and ph 6.0-7.5

Max Size: approx 15cm / 5.90 inch

Bred by: Not reported to PP, however has been bred overseas in Germany many times.
