For people that want to learn more about Black and White hypancistrus, here is a detailed article written by Haakon H.
Haakon has made a point that within each clutch of fry you have so much variant. See the pictures below and you can see for yourself.
Each of my breeding fish has its lineage confirmed and traced back to its german origin. I have been fortunate enough to acquire my breeders from multiple sources as 1 inch fry going years back.
The lineage of my fish could be traced from Eric Bodrock and all the way back to Robert Budrovcan.
With Eric's permission, i linked the article that he has written:
Here is the link to Planetcatfish with Robert Bodrovacan's project going way back to 2002.
I will keep updating the post as i add new pictures as well as updated pictures of the individual fish as they grow:
