    Does anyone have this cat (Farlowella acus). I understand that it's a good algae eater but picky and non-competitive feeder. Tougher than otos? I also read conflicting reports of size (anywhere from 7 to 10 inches).
    My chicken legs taste like chicken--only less meaty.

    They are awesome but they sure do look delicate with that snoot and all.

    I just added a 4" farlowella to my 30 gallon tank today. One of the otos attached itself to his/her back for some time. What a great addition to the tank!
