Hypostomus cochliodon

The Hypostomus cochliodon lives in the benthopelagic, freshwater, pH range: 6.3 - 7.2, dH range: 10 - 18 environment.

It could well be Hypostomus cochliodon but there is considered to be a H. cochilodon "group" of various sub species or near species with slight regional differences. Nice find, these are undemanding and grow to between 8" and 12" so they stay a sensible size. More

comments on the identity of Hypostomus cochliodon Kner, 1854, and on the paraphyly of the group are given. A hypothesis that Hypostomus soniae sp. n. may have been separated from a Paraguayan species during the late Tertiary is advanced. More
