My experience with Ancistrus dolicopterus has been just the opposite:
I found mine to be tough little buggers, surviving all kinds of
abuse I have heaped onto them in the last five years. The only thing mine
appreciate is high ammonium and nitrite.
I don't doubt Dwight's experience - due to the large number of related
there's got to be some variation in sensitivity.
