Hypancistrus L201 vs Ancistrus L159

1 day old – 5 weeks old

Hypancistrus L201 and Ancistrus L159 both belong to the family Loricariidae and are pretty similar species. Therefore, I thought I would be interesting to compare the two. With L201 it takes longer before the yolk-sac is gone. In the beginning, L201 grows a lot faster than L159, but over 5 weeks, L159 has gotten bigger. With l201 the growth starts rapidly, but stabilizes. L159 grows at a more consistent pace.
