Deformations

Deformations in captive breed loricariine are known for several species of this subfamily. Most susceptible seems to be offsprings of species of the genus Loricaria.
There are a lot of explanations for the appearance of deformations:
  • Quality of the water
  • Chemistry of the water
  • Inadequate nutrition
  • Raising with insufficient individual space
  • Artificial raising
We try to prove these assumptions and develop methods to avoid deformations.
