Farlowella with Sorority?

So I'm going to be doing a fully planted sorority tank in the next few months, and I have bought a 20 long for this purpose. Do you guys think I could put a Farlowella catfish in there? I know they mostly eat driftwood, and I'll be happy to put driftwood in there for him/her to snack on, as well as getting some of the Repashy "Wood" food to keep him happy. I used to have one a very long time ago, and I always have been fond of them.

HOWEVER -- if you guys think the females would pick on him, I won't do it. I know they're not from the same part of the world, so that's why I'm asking. If not, I'll get some dojo loaches or something like that instead.

Thanks guys!
Jamie

I have not! That's a good idea, I'll go over there and ask.

They're NEAT fish -- Long and skinny with an extended rostrum and filaments on the dorsal and caudal fins... I really really like them!

I have never heard of them either, but I did google them! They do seem like a cool fish. Sorry I am not very helpful either...

My girls do not bother mine. They are very good at blending into my plants though - about the only time I see them is if they happen to be hanging on the glass.

And yes, they are one of the coolest looking kinds of suckerfish!
