This peculiar-looking fish is a hit in aquariums, thanks to its ability to chow down on algae, the bane of any fish-keeper's existence. P. gibbiceps are usually peaceful with other fish, but territorial clashes can pop-up from time-to-time. Wood is a must-have for these guys, likely more for its aid in digestion than any actual nutritional value. As they can grow to a generous 60.96 cm, they need a large tank with good filtration and can tolerate a range of freshwater conditions, so long as it's well-aerated. All the traits of its genus are on show, with a sizable dorsal fin with more than nine rays, flared-out nares, and a bump or crest in front of the dorsal fin with a wide base. Its coating is usually shades of brown with large, irregular spots against yellow undertones, which get smaller as the fish matures.
