PostSubject: Ancistrus breeding varieties    Mon Sep 12, 2011 9:34 am

I’m wondering. I just asked a question about the red Ancistrus. I know about a least one albino
(from the Ancistrus cf. Cirrhosus) and a longfin variety. How many varieties are there in the Ancistrus spiecies? Tnx

Or you could look in the Bristlenoseworld profiles HERE which lists Named, L Number and LDA Number Ancistrus.

Damm :P I asked the wrong question. I ment:
How many breeding forms from the Ancistrus are there?

I know the albino, the longfins and the red one.

No, I’m trying to ask how many "home made" species there are from the entire Ancistrus family.
So not the wild caught but the ones we "humans" selected, selected and finally created a new “species” such as the super red, longfin and albino.

Ancistrus cf. Cirrhosus in itself could be described as man made, as cf. means it “compares to” or “confers.” in that the lineage of them can not be traced.

I do not think the albino can be considered as a man made as they can occur in the wild, although the chance of survival is low.

Most fish described as L144 are probably just a man made variation (Ancistrus sp. (4) ), possibly developed from a leucistic BN. The description for the fish originally numbered L144 describes it as being a yellow/brown colour.

There are calico varieties created by crossing different morphs, either with each other or with commons.

The albino has colour variations and the markings can vary, but they all have the red eyes.
