Hi this is sounds like nobie question, i always had problem with keeping plecos, am not sure is it the co2 they dont like, or the heavy planting, my ph goes down to 6.3 with co2, i tried gold nuget twice and they all died with in 2 weeks, now i found Farlowella at the store and got 2, one died after a week the other one still ok, my question is how to feed them? they will not go tword any food tab, all other fish been there for some time(more than 2 years) whats the tric to keep them alive?
thanks

Hi,

Are talking [FONT=&quot]Farlowella[/FONT][FONT=&quot]acus[/FONT], does it look like this? http://www.aqua-fish.net/show.php?h=whiptailcatfish Or, any of the “Whiptails? http://www.planetcatfish.com/catelog/species.php?species_id=777]

These guys are very easy going, timid fish, easy to raise with compatible tank mates. :)


Your pH (if that were important) seems perfect. They like algae wafers, Nori, is a real treat, Romaine lettuce, peas, zucchini and so forth, sometimes blanched, sometimes raw, they like a varied diet. :cool:
