    Need some help to ID this fish. Can anybody tell me if it is a Farlowella Acus or a Farlowella Vittata.

    Its near impossible to tell from that pic, but my gut feeling would be 'Vittata'. Only a true close inspection of its fins and rostrum would tell? Do a google search and aslo look on sites like Wiki and planetcatfish. They may be able to help you identify more acurately? Is this one of your fish or someone elses? I've been looking for farlowella's and sturisoma's for quite some time! Looks nice and healthy from the not so clear pic! Cheers! Big G!

    Big G: It is my fish, and it is really healthy. Bought it as F. Acus from a LFS in Pretoria, but after looking at pics on the web it is really hard to tell which one it actually is. I will try and get a better pic this weekend. I started off with three sometime ago. Unfortunately I have lost two due to their own stupidity. They manage to get into and stuck in the strangest places. One got stuck between the glass and the return spray bar of the canister filter. When I found him there, it was to late.
