The amount of coloration will vary with each individual pleco as just like a snowflake, no two are the same. Males will grow bushy appendages around the mouth and on top of the head. Some adult females will have a few bristles near their mouth but not like their male counterparts.

Ancistrus plecos are omnivores that eat both meaty foods as well as plant matter though they seem to eat more vegatation than meaty foods. They are generally safe for planted aquariums and stay smaller than most other pleco species. A staple food these are raised on are fresh vegetables including canned no salt added french cut green beans as well as fresh zucchini.
