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?
