Family Loricariidae – Suckermouth Armored Catfishes

This group is special to us as our first catfish to have reproduce in our aquaria was Hypancistrus zebra. This is now back over 20 years ago when pleco species were uncommonly spawned in captivity. Fast forward to now where we know so much more about not only plecos but other interesting species from this group of catfish.
