Re: [Killietalk] Couple of questions
Aren't farlowella's wood chewers also? Every week when I do water changes
in the 55 gal, I debate getting rid of my clown plecos. Damn wood chewers
make so much poop it's not funny. Anyways, I feed 'em crushed peas, algae
wafers, and cucumber when I have it. Farlowella's need the same kind of
diet, and they'd certainly appreciate driftwood, even if they don't eat it.
