    Default Curious about Ancistrus sp. Albino "Long-finned"


    0 Not allowed!
    Is this a naturally occurring Ancistrus species or is this variety hybridized or line bred? I have seen a variety of responses on the internet.
    Also, what is the actual size that they get. I have seen 5 inches, but mine ( a female) is approximately 7" from nose to end of tail.

    A linebred variaty of the Ancistrus cf cirrhosus (which is expected to be a crossbred of several Ancistrus-species itself).

    My largest standard fin breeders are the same size as fissh said, they all top out at 5" for the male, and 4.5" for females. I guess if you're measuring the fins, she could be 7", those must be some long fins!

    That is with fins. Ill try to put on measuring tape to get an accurate measurement. Maybe it isn't an ancistrus at all? I am not at all an expert on pleco's.

    I was going to suggest that, that maybe she is an albino different pleco species, but I've never kept the long-finned variety, so I guess the caudal fin could be almost as long as the fish. I know with angelfish, you're supposed to stop measuring where the body ends and tail fin starts when measuring lengthwise to keep the veils in proportion to standard fin.

    Okay, he isn't as long as I thought... I told a "big fish" story-- my eyes deceived me.
    I thought he looked bigger in the tank than my largest discus, but it looks like he is anywhere ( it was hard to get a picture because he wouldn't stop moving!) between 5.5 and 6 inches.
    Is it ancistrus?

    Lol!
    I'm not a pleco pro either, someone else can answer for sure, but she looks like a BN pleco to me. Oh, I didn't know you were being that precise! She looks like she's 5.5". Nice pleco :) I always liked the LF albinos, they remind me of ghost-like creatures.
