|Size||140mm or 5.5" SL. Find near, nearer or same sized spp.|

|Breeding||One of the fishes, probably the male, carries the eggs on the lip barbels and under the stomach. The color of the eggs are grey and they turn progressively darker after 4-5 days. After a week the fry hatch. They are rather big, about 4 mm and will eat artemia eggs and granulated dried food from the start. About 20-25 eggs are laid. Breeding was accomplished in hard tap water 20 dh. and pH 7.5.
