    Default Farlowella with angels?

    Hi, kids. Anybody keep Farlowella/twig cats? I hear they're pretty shy; would a couple of them do OK in a 29g with a couple angelfish?

    Background to this question: I want some algae eaters of some sort in my Orinoco/Rio Negro tank. BN plecos don't come from that region, and the rubberlip types need a lot more movement than I want. I like ottos and I kept them for a long time, but I gave up on them because the last several batches from the LFS were so starved that they didn't make it long.

    Opinions on farlowellas? Any other options I'm missing?

    Thanks!

    My friend had some whiptails in his tank for a little bit. He didn't keep them because they just sat around all day in the sand, but he would trade fish all the time, something I don't do myself. Also, all catfish (except some corydora types) are primarily nocturnal anyway. I think the angels would leave them alone after they initially check them out if that's what you were wondering. Maybe someone here knows more about them, but I think that's a cool catfish to keep. I didn't know they were algae eaters!

    Thanks! Rachel says they're pretty sedentary, but still extremely cool. Camo fish. :)

    Well, they are quite skinny, I suppose it really depends on your angels' personalities, but mine leave amano shrimp alone, so I would try them with my angels. I read they are sensitive and don't do well with large WCs, so not for my tanks if that's the case. I like the temperature they prefer and the fact that they eat algae, even filamentous! Don't know how they would eat it though if it wasn't right in their faces?

    I've never kept those myself, but I do have a couple whiptail cats in my 220. I've had them for years, one even outlived my 20+ year old featherfin Synodontis catfish. They never bother other fish, and generally seem to be ignored while they do their own thing.
