Look at this beauty!





Almost walked past this fish at Azalea, glad I saw it!

I've seen Whiptail's before, but can't recall seeing a "Longnose" Whiptail.

The genus of the catfish is Farlowella. It is most likely Farlowella vittata.

You want to keep an eye on the tiger barbs to make sure they are not harassing your new catfish.

Wow, thats a good find on the info, I thought it was a whiptail pleco of the "sturisoma" genus.

I think your ID is more accurate, althought LFS sold it as Whiptail Pleco.

Common name is "Twig Catfish" for the Farlowella.
