    Good day to all,

    I just got offered 0,0,2 P. spilosoma. Unffortunately there’s not much info to be had out there.

    Does anyone have personal experience keeping this species?

    Regards

    R.

    Hi Rudiger,

    Have you visited planetcatfish? You could contact some of the registered keepers for info.

    I have a very similar sp, p pernambuco. I’ve had 2 for three or four years. They come in to my LFS occasionally in the “pitbull plecos”. Great cleaners when young but have taken to my offered foods quite well and not as aggressive on the algae now. I’ve always liked them and have intended to get more but haven’t.

    Hare’s a rare glimpse of one of mine. They like to hide.

    Hi,

    thanx for the reply. From what I gathered so far, apparently not much difference to Otocinclus spp. as far as general maintenance is concerned?

     

    That is one beautiful fish you got there. Well fed? Or female with eggs?

    Regards

    R.

    These are a good bit bigger of course, mine are 2+ in, and a little bit more aggressive than ottos. Not harmful in any way but I’ve watched them push cories & such out of the way to hoard a wafer.

     

    I think this one is both well fed & gravid. I’m pretty sure I have 2 females. I t would be nice to find a male!
