Are whiptail catfish farlowella acus easy to house?
not sure about the whiptail but i have a farlowella in my 20h at first i thought it was kinda cruel since there so long but he loves it in there there very bad swimmers they hop more than swim...but anyway yeah a nice piece of driftwood is a must in the tank though and id highly suggest lots of plants they like to perch on them and the wood helps their digestion....but he is an awesome fish they are very good at hiding they really do look like a twig. i have heard they can be a pain to acclimate but i had no problem and have even moved him from tank to tank a few times. but all in all he is a great fish
I have a whiptail in my 50 gal, they are very peaceful. I dont see her a whole lot she just hangs out under my plants all day & blends in with the substrate. After the lights off I will see her on the driftwood or side of glass but they are pretty cool fish. They do just kinda skip around when they move... but I like it alot.
Awesome i've been thinking about getting one for a while but haven't, due to them being higher priced than the otto cats. Now that i have lost most of my fish due to a previous mishap with the pressurized co2 injection, I am starting to get a list of fish i would like to have. This is the tank I will be putting them in it is a 30 gallon long, just has an algae problem that i am slowly erradicating.
