I am so glad I found this page! I have grown very attached to Ancistrus!
Thought I would post a couple of pictures of my own:
That guy is in my 55g tank, with three angelfish, a school of Blue/Red Columbian Tetras, a school of Rummynose Tetras, a few Corydoras , and a single Siamese Algae Eater. The tank is generally medium to heavy planted, though I have recently thinned it out.
My other tank is a 29g that is definitely a "heavy" planted tank. It is home to a male and female albino ancistrus - the male is a Butterfly albino. I cannot find a picture on this computer to upload of them.
Of interest (at least to me) - several months back, I had let the 29g become EXTREMELY overgrown. The tetras tank were having a hard time finding swimming room!). AT the time, there was a school of Blue/Red Columbians in the tank. First I noticed a massive hatch of those tetras. Then I noticed that the pair of Ancistrus had also had a batch of fry - as I counted 20+ tiny juveniles. Unfortunately, I was unable to save any of them. They were in the tank one evening, the next - gone. They pair hasn't apparently "tried" again.

Sorry to hear you lost your first batch. It's likely to have been something wrong with the water. Try conditioning your pair. There's lots of info here in the forums to help you out and lots of helpful people!
