Peckoltia sp. (L288)

Note:
Due to variations within species, your item may not look identical to the image
provided.

Size  100mm or
3.9" SL. Find near, nearer or same sized spp.

Sexing       Males
develop small teeth-like odontodes which adorn the leading pectoral fin rays
and the back half of the fishes body. Females remain unadorned and have a wider
girth across the body most evident when the area just behind the pectoral fins
is viewed from above.

Distribution

Amazon, Lower Amazon, Curu?

Feeding     Omnivorous
with a tendency towards meaty foods. Not an effective algae eater. Well fed
individuals will not damage most plants.

Furniture    Rock
piles and wood tangles. Plants are not vital.

Compatibility       Peaceful
if a little territorial. As a rough guide give each fish a 12 inch square area
well broken up with decorations.

Suggested Tankmates A
medium sized pleco that can be combined with a very wide array of tankmates due
to its unfussy nature. Perfectly safe with small fishes and shrimp or robust
enough to withstand the attention of all but the largest cichlids.

Breeding    Cave
spawner.
