Farlowella vittata

2/02/2013



Farlowella vittata is a South American armored catfish that is noted for its long 'nose', called a rostrum. The male cleans off a corner of the glass, usually where the sponge filter causes strong water movement, and the female lays her eggs, sticking them to the glass, and leaving brood care exclusively to the male, like other armored catfish.
