My new Twig Catfish & Vid of my setup.

75g Community Tank. This is the latest change up, it got really plant heavy at one point so I thinned it up a bit. Would love feedback:

YouTube - More Fish Tank Shots

YouTube - More of My Fish Tank in HD <---- had the macro on so the focus doesnt kick in untill a few seconds in. oops!

nice tank.
will he take much looking after ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

From what I have read, the Farowella may be a chore when it comes to keeping them fed because of there odd shape itmay become an issue to scavange off the bottom of a gravel bottom, but I'm going to give it a shot. Ive read people have had them for up to ten years in some cases.

I just took some more video last night. of one of my snails hitchin a ride on another snail.
