Hypancistrus sp. L 236

The mysterious fata morgana of the genera

There are only two types of keepers of this fish: First, the ones with the real 236. And second – the unlucky people that have the faked ones. The problem: Each group is blaming the other one to belong to the second one! The following article is based on my search for this fish, starting in 2007, when I first discovered some wildcaught L 236 at Aquarium Glaser.
