I went to petsmart of all places to grab some ottos for my tank (full of diatoms or brown algae in prep for an algae eater)
I was surprised to find 3 twig catfsh for sale..... I remembered this forum and byron posting about his Farlowella's so I picked one up.
The tank is FULL of diatoms so I think we should be ok for food for at least a few weeks (I hope lol), also lots of live plants that are growing actively, and also only peaceful tank mates (cories and swords).
wondering if there is anything else I should be aware of with this species and keeping it healthy.
I am also thinking about going back and getting another one (hopefully of opposite sex if possible) just know they are hard to find and I think I lucked out finding them locally. Is there an easy way to sex them or is this impossible lol.
My ph is 7.4 and I have been reading profiles that say up to 8ph is ok and others that say only 7 or lower..?
I will try and get some pictures
