(And I have a farlowella, too! love that guy!) The cardinals like to break off and go exploring the tank but for the most part they just hang. The only difference is tank size as mine is a 29 gal. Just a little bigger, but not too much. If you want 20 cardinals, I say get them.
Then 20 it is :) If I can manage too keep up with school work and water changes *crosses fingers*

Where did you get your Farlowella and how much did he/she cost?? I'm assuming quite a bit since no LFS in my town have them :/ Oh well, 1.5h to a good store....

Yep! As long as you keep on top of water changes you should be just fine.

I couldn't find a farlowella locally either, so I ended up ordering mine online from a phenomenal seller. I even got my cardinals from her, too. Unfortunately she doesn't ship to Canada. :(

You said you were in the Vancouver area...I know where you can get Farlowella vitatta when in season (they are wild caught). Prices are usually around $12 to $18 each.

I may be able to give you one or a couple, if my fry mature. I have a trio that I got 4 years ago, and they spawn regularly. I have raised fry a couple times, and currently have over 12 in my 10g. Difficult to feed at this stage, that is the tricky part, but a few usually make it to maturity. They are only a couple weeks old now, so they would be "ready" by the Summer.
