Notes - Hypancistrus furunculus is a great starter Hypancistrus. As with other Hypancistrus, it is a carnivore and will not eat veggie based foods. This pleco stays a reasonable size for their entire life, and can be paired with many other community fish without issue. As the name suggests, the Yellow Zebra can have striking contrast with yellow and black stripes.
