Leporakantikus triaktis: tips on care and maintenance

Hello dear readers! Leporakantikus triaktis is an aquarium fish belonging to the family Loricarid or Chain Som. He also notifies by the name of L-091.

In nature, the fish is found in the basin of the South American Orinoco River. The fish is quite interesting and at the same time aggressive.

But let’s sort it out in order.

Leporakantikus triaktisa elongated and flattened bottom and top. On the large head there are horn protrusions on the upper part.

The mouth, like that of Ancistrus, has a sucker and is equipped with several rows of teeth. The top row has longer teeth than the bottom.

The whole body of the fish is covered with bony plates with the exception of the belly.

In the anal and pectoral fins, the anterior rays have a thickening, which have several spines. The dorsal fin has the appearance of a sail and is mainly pressed to the back.

There is also a small fatty fin on the body. The basic color can be black, brown or gray. Unpaired fins have orange and yellow spots.

Males are much larger than females and have a brighter color. Under natural conditions, the fish grows up to 30 centimeters in length.

But representatives of this species living in aquarium conditions are much less.

Leporakantikus triaktis – the most natural predator. If there is an insufficient number of shelters in a pond, then a hydrobiont may show aggression in a flock towards its congeners. Fish can be kept with other non-aggressive fish of similar size.

During the day, the hydrobiont mainly hides in shelters, and when dusk comes out of its hole and is active. Aquarium for leporacantiku need a very spacious – 300 liters for at least one individual.

In addition, provide in Aqua a large number of shelters in the form of grottoes, caves, dense thickets of aquarium plants, planted along the back wall. An ideal variant for creating dense vegetation along the walls is the use of giant and spiral wallisneria. The optimal conditions for the content are as follows:

  • water temperature: 20-25 degrees;
  • hardness: 5-15 dH;
  • acidity: pH 6.0-7.0;
  • powerful filtration and aeration, as well as regular changes ¼ of the water to fresh
  • diffused and moderate light.

You can feed the fish dry, ice cream and live food. The hydrobiont perfectly eats worms, bloodworms, shrimps, fish and mussels.

Herbal supplements from Sera and Tetra can be used as dry food. Also, if there are snails in your tank, your pet may have a snack.

Unfortunately, there is no information about the reproduction of leporocantikus triactis, as the fish spawn in the deep holes of natural water bodies.
