Ancistrus sp. Rio Tocantins

Post by bekateen »

While at the Greater Seattle Aquarium Society meeting in earlier this week, I picked up nine baby Ancistrus sp`rio_tocantins`. I recognize that the color pattern will change as they age, but at this size, their pattern reminds me a bit of both Ancistrus sp`wabenmuster` and also Ancistrus sp`rio_paraguay`, except that the pale areas on these babies are metallic green instead of tan, and the dark color isn't as bold in my fish as in the wabenmuster.

I've never intended to be a collector of Ancistrus, but I'm now up to three species and I know I'm not finished. :YMPARTY:

Cheers, Eric
