|A sandy coloured fish with indistinct markings often labelled Peckoltia arenaria Eigenmann & Allen, 1942 which appears incorrect as the type locality for that species is in Peru.
|Males develop small teeth-like odontodes which adorn the leading pectoral fin rays and the back half of the fishes body. Females remain unadorned and have a wider girth across the body most evident when the area just behind the pectoral fins is viewed from above.

|Omnivorous with a tendency towards meaty foods. Not an effective algae eater. Well fed individuals will not damage most plants. User data.
|Rock piles and wood tangles. Plants are not vital.
|Peaceful if a little territorial. As a rough guide give each fish a 12 inch square area well broken up with decorations.
|A medium sized pleco that can be combined with a very wide array of tankmates due to its unfussy nature. Perfectly safe with small fishes and shrimp or robust enough to withstand the attention of all but the largest cichlids.
|There is no breeding report.
