I have attempted to keep some Farlowellas in the past, have found them to be
delicate and sensitive. If you are looking for a good, sturdy, and smaller
algae eater, think about the ancistrus species, bristlenose. I have some
bristlenose and I love them, they are hearty, do their job, and do not mess
with anyone. In fact, you can get some beautiful sailfin types if you search
enough-www.boesterscichlids.com. I am fairly certain there are several types
of bristlenose that originate from South America.
