Planted aquariums with high aeration and water movement are essential for providing a healthy and safe environment for Farlowella Cat. Adding rocks and driftwood to the tank can further enhance the natural habitat, while also providing a space for the fish to hide and reduce its stress levels. A 50 gallon tank or larger is highly recommended for this species in order to provide them with plenty of space to swim and explore. Furthermore, having a larger tank will also increase the stability of the water parameters and help maintain a healthy environment for the Farlowella Cat.

Feeding the Farlowella Catfish is an easy task since it is not a picky eater. This fish feeds off the bottom of the tank and obtains its nourishment from leftover food and algae. To ensure the Farlowella Catfish is receiving its required nutrition, supplement its diet with a high quality flake food, sinking herbivore pellets, or freeze-dried bloodworms. These dietary supplements can help boost nutrition levels, which will also help improve the overall health of the Farlowella Catfish. Moreover, supplementing its diet with these food options will also ensure it is getting adequate amounts of essential vitamins and minerals.
