Common Name(s) : Twig Catfish
Latin Name : Farlowella sp.
Synonym(s) : Acestra sp.
Water : 6.0 - 7.0
Habitat : Southern tributaries of the Amazon
Temperature : 75 - 80 F
Size : 150mm (6 inches)
Sex Differences : The male's "snout" is broader and when mature sports small bristles. The female has a thinner snout which always remains smooth.
Diet : Green and soft brown algae, cucumber and lettuce.
Breeding : Spawning occurs at night or in the very early morning. Around 40 - 60 eggs are produced. The male guards the eggs until the fry are free swimming. The breeding aquarium should have dim lighting, very mature water and a neutral pH.
Compatibility : Peaceful, to the point of being timid.
Suggested Tankmates : Tetras or Rasboras are best. Avoid fast or "nippy" fishes such as Danios or Barbs. Will do well with Corydoras catfish, but larger catfish or cichlids are to be avoided.
Tank Deco : Bogwood, particularly tall, spindly root-like structures. Tall plants such as Vallisneria or Amazon swords. Roof slate if you can get it.
