Leporinus fasciatus (BLOCH, 1794)

Banded Leporinus

March 13th, 2012 — 1:19pm

This species is also referred to as ‘black-anded leporinus’, ‘striped leporinus’ and ‘eight-banded leporinus’.

Young specimens are often traded for aquaria without warning as to their potential size and requirements, and as a result it’s fairly ubiquitous in public aquarium displays.
