Well i went to this specialty fish store nearby and i saw they had a one time deal stock of farlowella acus(although im not sure that is what species mine is) and i've always wanted one, so i got the healthy looking one and put him with my gouramis and rubber lip pleco. Its been about a week and i havent physically seen him eat. I put hikari algae wafers in every day and they are gone when i wake up in the morning, but i dont know if its the gouramis that eat it or the pleco. So far, the farlowella is sucked onto the glass on the left side of my aquarium and he has stayed on the left side the entire time since i got him. Any advice? Also, i have some pictures of him.
I also have a Striped Raphael Catfish that i've had for a little bit more than a year. And although i dont see him often, he always looked healthy and energetic when i did see him. A few days ago i noticed he had a weird white nick in his side(pic attached) i dont know what it is though. He shares a tank with a 4' oscar and a 4' senegal bichir.
