You have the perfect tank for Farlowella. They are equal to otos in their constant grazing of all surfaces for common algae (the same algae otos will eat, common green and diatoms). Can be kept singly, or in a trio. I recently posted some photos on my Farlowella spawning, and of the fry which are doing fine now after several weeks. A neat fish, almost prehistoric, but extremely peaceful, 5 inches max but so think this is hardly noticed, and terrific in soft acidic tanks.
Check out the profile, Farlowella vittata, [click on the shaded name] and the photos in my other thread here Spawning Farlowella (Twig Catfish)
