|IUCN Red List Category||Not Evaluated|
|Breeding||No reports of breeding in captivity. It appears that this species doesn't care for the brood in the traditional cave-breeding manner that other loricarid species does, but rather that the eggs are released in running water and allowed to disperse, similar to many non-brood-caring species.|
|Breeding Reports||There is no breeding report.|
