SA Catfish suggestion
I am interested in adding a sucker-mouth catfish to my under-populated
40-long. My requirements are that it fit into my South American Only
Flora/Fauna scheme, that it grow no larger than, say, 6 inches, and that it
not much on my vascular plants. There is some benthic green algae, and a
little bit of driftwood for it. Also, I'd be willing to add algae "wafers"
as a food source if it wants. Could I go with the Farlowella - or will they
munch my plants?
The archives seem to indicate that Farlowella might put holes in my Amazon
Sword plants, and possibly that they are demanding and delicate - any
experience there? An old APD post suggested members of the genus
"Hypoptoma" (maybe they mean "Hypoptopoma"). What about this? I currently
have 4 panda corys.
