Probably fine; have a look of our profile on this species: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/p.../twig-catfish/

I can't remember your water hardness but over time the tank pH may drop some if it is around neutral now. Not vacuuming the substrate will aid this.

Yep, BN's do need wood to rasp as well. My two go nuts on my two dw pieces when they are not scouring the ground, plants or tank walls for algae.

love seeing the close-ups and full tank shots, byron! thanks for those...i know that i've been waiting a long time for those! and thanks for trying to hook me up with more frog bit! i have some now but it is by no stretch of the imagination anywhere near as nice as yours. from what i could tell, yours was nice and big, like a succulent. maybe a testament to the health of your tank. hopefully it will make two transitions (>>kymmie>>me)!

Hi Byron. I did read it. I kind of gave up on it until I mentioned it here because the profile page states acidic water and I have neutral.

As I mentioned, your tank is relatively new, and unless your water is hard (KH and GH) the pH in the tank will drop. When it gets below 7, and after the tank is established (another issue for Farlowella, never in new tanks), consider this fish. They really are one of my favourites, they are odd, interesting, extremely peaceful, no copius waste as with many plecos--really no bad habits of faults. Plus they do a terrific job keeping plant leaves spotless. What more could one want?

Love the tank and fishes. My issue the ph here is too high for it at 7.6. The Farlowella would probably not do too well in it.
