Loricariids such as the Ancistrus, the Otocinclus earless catfish and other L catfish are herbivores. In nature as well as in the aquarium, these beautiful and useful fish take care of algae growth on hard surfaces, but sometimes they also nibble on deciduous leaves and soft-leaved aquatic plants.

In the aquarium there is often not enough growth for sucking catfish on the deco and on the aquarium glass. Here you should definitely feed the interesting aquarium fish. Since Ancistrus, Otocinclus and the other L-catfish such as the popular and beautifully drawn Hypancistrus zebra L 46 or even the whimsical-looking witch catfish live on the bottom, they need food tablets that sink immediately and are then directly available to the catfish. Suction catfish have nothing to gain from flake food that floats on the water surface for a long time.

These catfish like to rasp and scrape surfaces with their rough sucking mouths, so somewhat harder food tablets, such as you can buy here in our online store, are optimal for these aquarium fish. Here they absorb enough fiber and roughage to ensure a good and healthy digestion.

Many catfish such as Ancistrus and the ear lattice catfish from the genus Otocinclus are predominantly herbivores and therefore also need food tablets on a predominantly vegetable basis. However, the algae eaters among the loricariids also always eat a certain amount of animal food along with the rasped coatings, small crustaceans and worms that live in the algae coatings would be an example here. Therefore, you can also give a food tablet from time to time, which was actually designed for the omnivores among the aquarium fish. They are also gladly rasped off by the catfish.

Especially interesting here are food tabs that can be stuck to the aquarium pane. This way you can optimally observe the catfish eating and watch the useful "window cleaners" rasping off their food - very interesting!
