Farlowella Behavior

Postby JensenBreck » Tue Oct 10, 2017 6:22 am

Hi everyone,

I got a Farlowella catfish today (Twig cat) and I'm not sure if (he?) is acting strange, or if they just have a really cool way of doing anything. He's currently leaning against a wall, standing on his tail, but not sucking the glass, he's actually facing the other way. I've also seen him just lay upside down or sideways on the bottom. Not for long, maybe 10 seconds on the back and a minute or two on the side (granted he was behind my filter and against the glass).

Anyone know if this is normal or not?


I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

does not sound good to me, although I am not sure what you can do about it.
