Ancistrus sp. L393

Another wormline patterned Ancistrus is L393. It's strangely similar to A.sp.“Tocantins” and L159, but is from the opposite end of the Amazon delta – Madre de Dios, Peru. L393 is a typical easy to keep Ancistrus species, suitable for most well kept aquariums.

Facts:

Name: Ancistrus sp. L393

Trade names: L393

Origin: Madre de Dios, Peru.

Maximum TL: 10 cm / 5''

 

This is a rare species in the hobby, and it's availability is currently depending on a few breeders around Europe. It's sexually mature already at 6 cm, and quite productive. It's easy both to keep and breed, and should have a great potential to become a popular species once it gets spread around more. It shares similarities with L159 from Rio Xingu and A.sp. “Tocantins”.
