Som antitrus dark.
Question som antitrus care about forty people a month. Excited and me
In some underwater Kingdom lived a giant Sami antitrus popularly referred to as the — stick. In the world of aquarium fish will give odds to any snail
Catfish ancistrus this vivid memory of my youth. When I first zoorynka saw this fish, and it appeared in Minsk in the late nineties, I was stunned thinking what a miracle the snail with spikes and tail.
I explained that this is not a snail, and know-how in the aquarium world, the male of antitrus. Females are larger and without thorns.
Even though they cost decently, about three rubles for things, I bought three and soon there were two, and one was zanabili, it is clear for aquarium three in one hundred liters was not enough. Generally this oblem suitable high for the pair, and it is better for one antitrus.
Dark ancistrus prefer to travel to countries such as Guyana, Paraguay, Suriname and the island of Trinidad, where love, bathed in the fast flowing rivers
The body of antitrus all in the armor, especially the males to that armor spikes are added on the head on the top and side which he rasshiryaet when worried or getting ready to fight!!
The most interesting thing in this catfish in it’s mouth in the form of a large sucker and scrapers in the oral cavity, which scrape algae from the aquarium and from all that is in it. By the way from the plants they do to the holes in them)) so don’t let the fouling of the leaves with algae!!
The size of som antitrus dark up to fifteen centimeters. The fish is peaceful with other, but among themselves sometimes to death, so one male one hundred and two 200 litres and above, it is better to keep a pair especially for more than two, and algae is not impossible to satiate))
Food mostly eat vegetarian, so having plants in the aquarium definitely. They will eat algae and dead leaves well and sometimes live young)) live feed is also necessary, sunken dry too gobble!!
For the content of catfish antitrus dark water of the necessary hardness of 3 – 11°, pH 6.5 — 7.0, temperature 20 — 28°C. Given that they are in nature like the flow, it is necessary to arrange them such a great vibe, putting in a powerful water pumping.
