Catfish Farlowella (Twig)
Planted aquariums with high aeration and water movement make for a healthy environment. Rocks and driftwood help to accent a natural habitat and provide hiding spaces to reduce stress for the Farlowella Cat. A 50 gallon aquarium or larger is recommended for this species.
Feeding the Farlowella Catfish is not difficult due to the fact that it is not a picky eater. Feeding off the bottom of the tank, it gets most of its nutrition from left over food and algae. If there is no algae or left over food present, supplement its diet with a high quality flake food, sinking herbivore pellets, or freeze-dried bloodworms.
